Are you interested in exploring different parts of the world and making friends from different cultures?
With the many opportunities to go abroad the VTC provides every year, our students are able to leave Hong Kong and go all over the world enriching their learning experience, finding out about other countries and cultures, enhancing their personal attributes and meeting students of different nationalities.
Funding support is also provided by the VTC to encourage students to participate in useful activities including academic and cultural exchanges, industry visits, industrial attachments and competitions.
Industrial attachment is an effective way to help students to stand out early in their careers. By taking the training in the form of workplace attachment and structured industry-based project, students are able to gain an exposure to industry and develop a better understanding of a real working environment and the skillset that is necessary for career development, in addition to building their professional networks.
The VTC also offers educationally-enriching international alternatives to students who are keen to explore attachment opportunities outside Hong Kong such as Mainland China, Australia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and the United Kingdom. Through their mind and horizon-broadening experiences, our students flourish and become better rounded and more flexible and independent.
"It truly has broadened my horizons because I have never been to Europe before this trip. This working experience allowed me to realise the big cultural difference between Asia and Europe and enhance my hospitality knowledge."

“I am glad to have met the chief director of ‘Little Speakers’ (小小演說家) and other co-workers during my industrial attachment. They patiently answered all my questions and gave trust and affirmation to my work. For example, they allowed me to take charge of video shooting and even taught me the skills of shot movement to produce better scene. I also realised the importance of communication and mutual understanding in the film and television industry. The staff would even sacrifice their rest time for a smooth filming. After a month, I clearly understood how not easy it is working in this industry, and also realised some of my shortcomings in teamwork.”

“Living in Thailand for a month, I think it was a wonderful opportunity to get to know more about things we will encounter in actual work situations, such as how to adapt to another country's work culture or experience completely different living habits.”
