MSE offers internships to students via the internship programs administered by the Public Service Division (PSD). The duration of each PSD internship typically lasts between a few weeks to several months, depending on the nature of the project and the availability of the candidate. While MSE does offer internships outside of the PSD framework from time to time, it is subject to organisational needs.
The objectives of internships are:
- To give top students a positive work experience in the Public Service
- To foster a better understanding of the mission and values that drives public policies
- To be the interns’ preferred choice of employer
