An accounting internship involving real world work experience that enables the (further) development and application of knowledge and/or expertise in accounting related subjects; problem solving; reflection; synthesis; and communication skills.
The accounting internship takes two basic forms. It may be project-based, whereby a student undertakes a specific project for a host as agreed to by the University, the student and the host, or it may be work experience-based, whereby the student spends time in an organisation undertaking relevant and appropriate work activities. However, these latter students would need to produce a negotiated deliverable during this time. Students may propose an internship themselves. Any such proposals must meet the criteria for the course and be approved by the Head of Department and the host.
Students who complete the internship course will achieve the following outcomes:1. Develop a proposal for the internship project and expected deliverables.2. Complete the internship to a standard that would be acceptable in industry.3. Reflect on the knowledge and skills that were needed to complete the internship, including: (a) how they were developed during the internship, and (b) how they relate to other papers completed.4. Present the findings from the internship (including deliverables and learning) in two different forms (Reflection of Learning Report and Final Presentation).
