The Professions Internship Program involves an Internship with an Australian business, not-for-profit organisation or government department. This provides the student with an opportunity to experience a hands-on business environment in which to observe and apply their knowledge and skills from their degree. Projects are negotiated between the Faculty and the sponsor within the host organisation, and may include a marketing plan, assistance with accounting or financial reporting, HR and organisational development plans or activities, social and economic development plans, research, business development, customer relations, events management and market entry strategies, or any other negotiated project. As well as undertaking an agreed project, students will be involved in observations, meetings, clerical work and administration, to gain a clearer insight into the day-to-day functioning of the business. Students must complete the program to the satisfaction of their host organisation as well as an academic supervisor to be eligible to pass this course. Internships will be offered to students on merit through a competitive application and interview process. Students must seek approval from the Internships Team for a formal and structured work placement, which is relevant to their studies before undertaking the placement, including participation in pre-placement activities.
