Description

In this subject, students undertake an internship with an organisation in a capacity relevant to their academic studies. This assists in developing employment skills, knowledge and contacts which can contribute to their career goals.

A written reflection and report on the outcomes of the internship is required. Students must undertake 100 – 180 hours of work with a host organisation. 180 hours is the maximum, which is equivalent to 4.5 weeks of full-time experience. The terms and time frame of the experience are flexible and may be negotiated between the student and host organisation. The internship must be based on an agreed and approved program of work that aims to achieve predetermined learning objectives.

Students must achieve a minimum overall weighted average mark of 55 to enrol in this subject. It is the responsibility of students to source their own internship. Students must enrol in this subject prior to undertaking an internship.
