Program Resume & Internship Statement Tips

The program combines coursework with a three day a week unpaid internship, and an eight day trip to the Kimberley in Northwest Australia. Your courses will be with other program participants, providing a learning community framework and an American perspective on your experience.

Students on the Sydney Internship program work in a variety of organizations. Instead of trying to fit you into a pre-existing internship placement, our experienced staff looks at your academic and professional background as well as your own learning objectives to find the right placement. In the past, we have had interns in fields including marketing, finance, politics, social welfare, public policy, journalism, communications, humanities, and visual, fine and graphic arts.
