Up-to-date host choice information

The DY process (at least for maths):

Here are the places Maths students have gone to in the past year and a half (larger font means more popular). Note that these show interest but not necessarily successful applications.

Contrast that with our subjective ratings on the availability of internship places vs likelihood of acceptance. You would be better off to go with hosts listed everywhere except the bottom left corner.

2021 S1 (August 2021)

No activity yet, check back later!

2020 S2 (January 2021)

As the DY starting dates are approaching, I’m happy to announce that about 65% of placements are now confirmed, and the rest are still in process.

Next steps:

The majority of you will complete your August DY in 2 weeks time (maybe some slightly earlier, and definitely some later due to extensions).

  1. Kindly provide the host assessment form and the employer feedback form to your host supervisors, and return the completed forms to me (online submission/hard copy). Note, sometimes your host e-mails them directly to me, and that’s fine too.

  2. You are required to write an internship report—please see here for a guideline on how to write this report. This report is due one week after you complete your internship. Please submit this to me online through the DY website. If you have extended, the report is due one week after your extended date.

  3. Following this, you will be assessed via an interview by one of the academic staff members at an appropriate time. Please make sure you check your UBD e-mail regularly. The timeline for this is roughly Nov-Dec, but may be delayed depending on availability of staff.

If you have any issues in the mean time, please contact me.

Forms, etc.

Host Feedback forms

There are two forms that you should get your host supervisor to fill in, they are

  1. DY Host Satisfaction Survey
  2. DY Host Supervisor Assessment Form

Please ensure these are returned to me by your supervisor. Sometimes, hosts return them back to you and that’s fine, just forward them to me. These count for 40% of your DY marks and is an integral component to pass your DY.

OSHE and RA forms

Students undergoing local internship or COP are required to complete OSHE and RA forms before undergoing the internship. The procedure is roughly as follows:

Report guideline

A report is to be completed and submitted in PDF format softcopy to DYA one week after the date that you internship is scheduled to end. Here are some guidelines for preparing an internship report:

Note that the above are simply guidelines. Your report will be assessed based on its content, presentation & format, conclusions & reflection of internship experience, and also evidence of workplace knowledge.

Maths DYAs

The Mathematics Discovery Year Advisors for 2020/21 are:

The DYAs serve as your point of contact for local DY related matters (internships and COPs). For study abroad programmes (SAP) or international internships, you will be liasing with the DYC Dr. Shiawyin Yong.

If you would like to schedule a meeting with Dr. Haziq about any DY related matters (signature, advice, etc.), use the Calendly scheduling tool to do so (no need to e-mail beforehand).
