Specific details of consultations with staff will be made available to students prior to the start of semester. Availability of placements varies from year to year. The process of organising placements can take some weeks and commences in advance of the start of semester.
Permission of the unit coordinator required before students can be enrolled.
You will be assigned to a work placement in a government, private, or not-for-profit organisation approved by the University. As part of your internship you will, where opportunity allows, contribute to the production, publication and presentation of creative content, while working under the supervision of a qualified professional. The combination of work-integrated learning and seminars focused on peer reflection and career discussion will offer you the opportunity to develop self-reflexivity towards your professional practices, as well as a clearer understanding of the industry contexts and work cultures to which you may be suited. The internship experience may also enable you to build a network of peers and industry contacts. Entry to the unit is competitive, and is subject to approval by the Coordinator and to the availability of work placements.
