How internships work

Students accepted into the internship programmes work with a local business or organisation for around 150 hours for a 300-level course, or 75 hours for a 200-level course, on a custom-specified project. The hours are flexible and can be completed throughout the year, during a semester, during term breaks or over the summer vacation. Each project has measurable milestones and agreed-upon end products. The internship courses include an academic component, with interns working under the supervision of a specialist from the university and each project is fully managed by the College of Arts Internship Co-ordinator.

How you can benefit

Interns can provide support for your current projects, expedite organisations wish-list projects, or analyse behind-the-scenes research for future projects. We work with businesses, government, organisations, community and volunteer groups, NGOs, and cultural and sporting organisations.

What you can offer

Interns gain valuable work experience and, through a fully supported academic programme, are able to offer businesses and organisations targeted and tangible benefits. We can work with your business to develop individual internships and we can facilitate larger group projects for social and community engagement projects.

The College of Arts is also able to arrange other forms of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and work experience projects at all levels of expertise.
