Are you an employer who wants to leverage the knowledge of students who are familiar with the latest communication and new media frameworks? By hiring CNM students, you also help develop the next generation of professionals. CNM is happy to offer two types of internships; a Compulsory Internship Programme that lasts 20 weeks and a 3-month internship that lasts 12 weeks.


The 20-week internship takes place every year, in two periods:

  • Jan - May
  • Jul - Nov

Students earn academic credits when they participate in the Compulsory Internship Programme.

Overview of 3-month Internship

The 3-month internship takes place only once a year, during the May - July holidays, and lasts 12 weeks. Unlike the 6-month internship, students who participate in this shorter-term internship do not earn academic credits.


The department recommends a minimum monthly allowance of S$1000. No CPF contributions are required.

Role of Employers

When a student joins the company, the employer is invited to appoint a workplace supervisor to guide and review the progress of internship. For the Compulsory Internship Programme, the workplace supervisor will need to evaluate and provide feedback on the student's performance at the end of internship. The workplace supervisor’s feedback accounts for a significant part of the grade that the student will receive at the end of the internship.
