Program Resume & Internship Statement Tips

Program coursework will allow you to interact with other program participants, in a learning community structure, providing the opportunity to share and benefit from others' perspectives.

At the end of your program, you will have a deeper understanding of Australian culture; a clearer view of where your education, talents and interests can lead you; and a greater understanding of your place in the world.

Placements are available in a broad range of areas including business; social sciences; humanities; and the visual, fine and graphic arts. We will find an internship to match your academic and professional goals and objectives. During the application process, our internship coordinators will work closely with you in defining your academic and professional ambitions, and will arrange a placement that best reflects these goals.

You'll work full time three days per week during your internship and will also attend class one day per week. You'll be assessed on a 3,000-3,500-word academic project that you research and write and is based on your work experience. At the start of your internship, you will attend an orientation session that will help to ensure your smooth transition to the workplace. Near the end of your placement, you will have a debriefing session to help you effectively review and analyze your professional experience.
