Start your journey here

Whether you’re an undergraduate or a graduate student, an Arts internship is a fantastic way to use your theoretical knowledge in the workplace and gain the skills highly valued by employers. Consisting of a workplace component and an additional coursework component, internships can be taken domestically or internationally, and can be student sourced or Monash sourced (sourced by the Arts Faculty).

  • Build Experience - Undertaking an internship helps you to build experience and develop your professional skills. This helps you to find suitable employment after graduating.
  • Take the first step - An internship is often the first step of your career, and doing one while studying is a great way to signal to potential employers that you know the realities of working in a professional environment and can contribute from day one.
  • Get hired - Many employers that we work with end up hiring interns upon graduation, or provide references, connections and guidance to help them find a job.

The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) team are keen to match you up with an internship that meets your needs. For internship opportunities, students complete a comprehensive application form which records information such as: field(s) of study; career objectives; employability skills; personal goals; availability and restrictions. The WIL team uses this information to match you with a suitable internship opportunity.
