Work experience and internships

Work in an organisation as part of your studies and get credit towards your course. You could be working with a member of state parliament, building a school in a developing nation, working behind the scenes at a television station, or as a researcher with a non-profit organisation. The opportunities are endless.

Advantages of doing an internship

  • Gain valuable work experience that counts towards your degree.
  • Apply what you’re learning in class to a real-world context.
  • Create networking opportunities – you’ll link up with people who can give you advice and introduce you to groups and networks.
  • Do an internship overseas and build your intercultural skills at the same time.
