The work depends on the team and the actual supervisor. In my case, there has been a lot of flexibility in performing job tasks which is an advantage. However, there have been many stressful periods during peak months and there is no back-up/buddy system so there can be a lot of pressure in case a person falls sick, etc. Also, holidays can be mostly taken when there are no classes which might not be convenient.
The University of Hong Kong is one of the Asia's most prestigious universities. The working pace in Public Health can be fast as we have to respond to the outbreak of the potential diseases in Hong Kong and China. Self-independent and high cooperative skills are needed to work here in order to react with any of the changing environment.

5 days work, close relationship in team,many chances are given to you as you can handle a lot of big-scale project on VR developement with varies of company and organization. The hardest part of the job is lack of human resource and specialists, so you will have to handle many projects at the same time with a very tight schedule. As the team is small, everyone is busy, you probably cannot find a mentor or getting advice immediately, but it is good for your self-learning process. Good Welfare free doctor consultation with pills and free dental service; Free sport centre with swimming pool

learned new techniques in the research facility friendly research assistants. the laboratory was very advanced in technology and techniques. it would have been wonderful if the internship was extended for a longer period of time.
Whether or not it is a good working experience, it depends mostly on the hiring person. In general, I was lucky and my boss is reasonable, and working hour is flexible. However, admin and HR can be rather inefficient, especially when it comes to paperwork and claimant.
