Internship program plays a vital role in exposing students to real activities. During an internship program, a study program needs to develop the ‘link and match’ between curriculum and industries. Hotel industry absorbs a great number of English department graduates; however, data showed a quite significant decrease in the number of students conducting internship program in hotel industries. Through a qualitative inquiry, this study examined students’ perceptions on their internship program at hotel industries. Using purposeful sampling, twenty-three sixth-semester students who had conducted their internships in hotel industries were selected as the participants. An online, structured, closed-ended questionnaire was distributed, followed by a semi structured interview with six out of the twenty-three participants. Data were analysed thematically. The findings of this study are expected to minimize the gap between education and the workplace and improve the implementation of internship program, particularly, in English study program Keywords english students perception internship hotel industry
