Applicants who meet the programme’s eligibility requirements and objectives will be invited to Round 1 of interviews with the GIP administrators at the GIA office.

The objective of the interview is to further discuss the applicant’s career aspirations, assess the applicant’s communication skills and better understand the applicant’s professional goals and interested. The key objective is to help achieve the right internship placement fit.
