This Internship will enable students within the Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Sciences to develop their career readiness skills by working with selected scientific and cultural organisations. ‘Interns’ will spend a semester (or equivalent) completing an agreed research project for their host organisation, spending about 1-2 days a week within the organisation and will also be assigned an academic supervisor within the University who will supervise and mark their research project. In general, the project will examine ‘real world’ problem-solving from interdisciplinary perspectives, and in particular the intersections between the ‘arts’ and ‘sciences’. The Internship will also be supplemented with a series of seminars on research and report writing as well as on topics related to career readiness. The final research report (up to 7,500 words or equivalent) by the student accounts for 70% of the final grade for the course.
