Accepted students to the EUR program will balance academic, scientific research and campus life as they prepare for college in the nation’s entertainment center – South California.

Summer School – The PremedProjects Team (UK)

Posted by heo

For students interested in going to medical school or becoming doctors, we’ve got just the summer for them.
Starting later this month and running all summer long we’ve got our medical camps running in the UK and Asia. Last year over 1,000 students from all over the world attended our camps with 91% going on to secure their places in medical school. The projects offer students much needed hospital work experience before they apply to medical careers and to help them find out if a career in healthcare is for them. The experience also teaches students how to succeed in their applications to medical school.

It would be excellent if you could make your students aware of the opportunities this summer. All the information for students is available on our website www.premedprojects.co.uk

Advertising Agency Internship for Secondary School Students : July 23rd – Aug 3rd

Posted by heo

We are offering an internship opportunity, which I think would be very fitting for Discovery College students.

Please do let me know who would be the best to coordinate with at Discovery College for this.

Red Fuse Communications is a WPP integrated communications agency.

We manage all of Colgate-Palmolive’s creative advertising, media, and digital work globally. (Think: toothpaste/ toothbrush, shampoo conditioner, pet foods)

Hong Kong is our regional hub for APAC, and we work with local offices all over Asia and our other regional hubs.

DIGITAL NATIVES is our global internship program for secondary Year 11 students and above (Aged 16+).

  • It has run in New York, Paris, and Mumbai, and we are bringing this to HK for the first time – dates: July 23rd  – August 3rd .
  • It is a digital-centric program, where we offer secondary school students an opportunity to work in an international creative environment.
  • They will get hands-on experience on strategy, creative process, and brand building – and even developing campaigns and ideas for Colgate-Palmolive.
  • Mentorship and one-on-one with senior managers across creative, media, digital and strategy disciplines.
  • We offer offsite visits and workshops to key digital platforms – in the past, we have worked with Snapchat, Facebook, and Refinery29.

Whether they are interested in advertising, communications or creative; marketing and knowing how to build your own brand is nonetheless core to basic business acumen in this digital age.

We hope our interns will walk away with this business enrichment graduating from Digital Natives.

This is an unpaid internship program, but we sponsor meals and transportation.

We will also give students letters of recommendation, and if the school would like any feedback or post-evaluation after the program – just let me know, I would be happy to accommodate.

Applications and recruitment is active, last day for submission is June 15th.

Student can apply here: http://digitalnatives.redfuse.com/apply/

You can find more information about Red Fuse and Digital Natives here:

We are looking at recruiting 12 interns for the program, ideally a mix of kids from different backgrounds or interests.

Applications are open now, ending June 15th. (http://digitalnatives.redfuse.com/apply/)

Students will be notified by June 30th whether their application was successful or not.

And one more detail that may differ from what’s on the website is that for HK it’s an unpaid internship – in case there’s any confusion from the students (we’re in the process of getting that updated on the website).

In the application, we strongly encourage the students to tell us what their interests are.

For example, we had an intern who was really into cryptocurrency and we were able to find an opportunity for him to showcase and share that knowledge with the group during the program.
