With the aim of helping students better equip themselves for the workplace, final year students are given the opportunity to spend a semester as 'interns' working within specified areas in the private or public sector in South Australia, while completing an agreed research report for their host organisation. The placements will normally be for one-two days a week and are supplemented with a series of seminars on research and report writing as well as on topics related to career readiness. Students will be allocated placements that relate to their key area of study from among a range of work placements which include public service departments, local government, statutory authorities and other non-government organisations as well as a range of private industries. Final placement will depend upon availability of a host organisation (arranged by the student or from a list of organisations which the Faculty has organised) and assessment of a formal application taking into consideration academic merit (a minimum credit average GPA). Students will be assigned an academic supervisor to supervise and mark their research project. The final research report (up to 7,500 words or equivalent) by the student accounts for 70% of the final grade for the course. This course provides a way for students to enhance their research and research writing skills, get some experience in the workplace and is an excellent preparation for Honours and postgraduate study.
