Pre-University Internship Programme

"The internship has been very insightful given how it combines both desk work with open dialogue sessions with senior management. This ensures that we can see the work MFA does at both a micro and macro-level...to gain a deeper understanding of MFA’s work and Singapore’s foreign policy.”

Kieran Lee
2018 Pre-University Intern
