Attend an information session
Come along to the information session on Friday 20 August, 1pm Beijing time, and 3pm AEST Melbourne time.
If you're feeling unwell, get tested for COVID-19 and stay home until you’ve received a negative result. View our latest COVID-19 updates.
In today’s highly globalised world, employers really value those with international experience. It allows for greater cross-cultural understanding, and opens up new avenues of thinking, bringing a fresh perspective into a business. An international internship will be a transformative experience, highlighting that you are willing to go above and beyond to achieve your goals.
According to current DFAT advice, students are not permitted to travel to undertake any programs overseas at this time. Therefore, until further notice, only students residing in their country of citizenship or permanent residency may undertake a placement offshore.
You must provide evidence of your residency and required insurances in the country of placement (see Monash Abroad registration information below). Depending on the location of your placement, your placement may need to be 100% remote. Upon submitting an expression of interest (see instructions below) we will be able to advise.
If you are currently residing in your home country or are a permanent resident in a country outside of Australia, we encourage you to source a placement in your home country and use it as the work component for a WIL unit.
Refer to the information below on host suitability, application process and requirements to approve.
It is important that you check your host meets this criterion before submitting the placement application.
Host organisations must meet Monash University minimum standards and OHS guidelines:
Please check the COVID19 level of the country of the placement/residency as this will determine if you are able to undertake a placement onsite or if it must be a remote/virtual placement.

Monash has now partnered with Chambroad, a multinational conglomerate, to offer you a unique summer internship program from 22 November 2021 to 18 February 2022 in China.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have available credit points in your course to fit your WIL unit. WIL units can usually be taken in place of elective or capstone units, or a combination of both.
Many organisations have industry internship programs where you need to apply directly to them in a competitive process. You are able to use this internship for the WIL program if:

If you would like to undertake a placement onsite, and meet this criterion above, you must ensure your host completes the OHS COVID19 questionnaire as well as provides the details of their public liability insurance or equivalent in the student placement pack.

If you would like to undertake a remote/virtual placement while residing overseas, you must ensure your host organisation completes the additional information regarding the supervision and remote working arrangements during the placement period in the student placement pack, section title "Remote Placement – Supervision and Support".
Once you have completed all the required documents, you can begin your online application:
What to expect:
You'll get access to the relevant Moodle site where you’ll find all the information about your assessment.
In order for you to understand what to expect during your industry placement, you are required to attend an Induction Session, which will cover important information regarding assessment and very useful workplace information. Please note your student card will be scanned to confirm your attendance and those who don't attend will be contacted.
You will receive details of the session in your placement confirmation email.
It is important to follow the application and approval process when applying for these opportunities.
When your placement is conditionally confirmed, you will be required to register with Monash Abroad. This will provide the university with information regarding your placement overseas and your relevant residency and insurance during your placement. Your placement will not be approved and you will not be enrolled in the WIL unit unless you have submitted your Monash Abroad registration.
Not applicable for current offshore programs – as no travel is permitted at this time.
You will be invited to an online placement induction session where you’ll have the chance to meet other students through Zoom who are embarking on a placement.
The unit assessment induction session is available on Moodle and provides you with valuable information about your unit assessment requirements. If you are unable to access this session, please contact your academic unit coordinator and check Moodle as soon as you have access to the unit to ensure you are aware of your assessment schedule.
You may choose to source an opportunity through an internship or placement organisation and once successful, submit a student sourced application. Monash University will require that your agreement includes information about the host organisation and the Third-Party Provider. We will thoroughly check the program is suitable before we approve the placement. Please ensure you provide as much information as possible to assist us to process your application.
