The UNLV Hospitality Internship Program is designed to provide UNLV students with an opportunity to relate current theory from the classroom to practical experience under the direction of professionals in extended work assignments. Students gain supervised practical experience in the field where they intend to pursue a career and to learn more about that field. Students receive academic credit and a grade based on the completion of the required hours, on-site internship performance, and assignments completed.

How do I Find an Internship?
UNLV Singapore will be assisting students with their placement. Students are required to list their choice of location of their internship site. We will contact the property and seek the internship opportunity. If none of the choices is successful, UNLV Singapore will assign students to a property that is available for internship participation.
Please note: There is no guarantee that students will get their preferred choice.
