Summer Internship Programme

Programme Overview

The UOB Summer Internship Programme is a budding talent programme completed during your internship with us, where those selected will also be fast tracked through the selection process should you wish to apply for the UOB Management Associate Programme after you graduate. You will be assigned to the business of your choice at the start of the programme. During the internship, you will experience the challenges and rewards of a career in the banking industry and get to know the business of UOB. To be a UOB Intern, we are looking for someone who is eager to learn and apply newly gained knowledge in a useful, practical and strategic manner, and who is able to commit a minimum of 10 weeks. This could lead to an invitation to take up a permanent position with UOB Singapore upon your graduation.


What we look for in a UOB Intern:

  • An undergraduate from a local or overseas university
  • An excellent track record in leadership, academic achievements and co-curricular activities
  • Strong communication skills


You will start the UOB Singapore Internship Programme with a corporate induction. This will provide you with an overview of the various businesses within UOB, insights into present-day challenges facing the industry as well as the Bank’s expectations of graduate hires. You will develop an in-depth understanding of the business function of your choice through on-the-job training and coaching. During your internship, you may undertake a corporate social responsibility project and participate in career development workshops.

The culture of UOB is supportive, caring and promotes growth, providing a safe space for me to learn, gain exposure and work on real time projects with colleagues always willing to help. I’ve benefitted from understanding the wholesale function and a macro picture of the industry through talks held by various departments.
