Overseas Internships

Overseas Internships provide students with new perspectives and added skills as they travel the world, attached to Singapore-based companies with international operations, multinational corporations as well as start-ups! While in-person overseas travel is limited, we encourage students to explore remote overseas internships!

Where do I start?

Students completing their second year of studies at RP can express their interest in pursuing Overseas Internships to their Programme Chair or School Overseas Internship Coordinator. Closer to the internship period, the skill sets will be matched with available overseas internship opportunities. 
You can also proactively express your interest on this weblink and we will circulate your interest to your school for further consideration. 


What is the support available?

RP works with Enterprise Singapore to tap on the Global Ready Talent Programme (GRT) to support Overseas Internships and build a pipeline of global-ready talent with exposure to the Emerging and Developing Markets. 

As travel is currently limited, RP works with Enterprise Singapore to provide students with a subsistence of $500/month to support remote overseas internships. This funding is in addition to any internship stipend.  

  • Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Internship must be within Emerging and Regional Markets
  • Cleared RP's selection criteria
  • To be utilised only for overseas internships (up to 24 weeks), that also meet RP’s graduation criteria, with a minimum of two continuous weeks
  • Not currently holding any other scholarships which provide specific funding for the same items
  • GRT Funding must be approved prior to commencement of internship


You can discuss your interest in overseas internships or the application for funding with the following school representatives.
