88021 Professional Internship



Students develop a structured industry placement in conjunction with academic staff and an industry or cultural organisation. This involves the negotiation of a learning contract to identify the outcomes of such experience and includes the design of a detailed program of activities to achieve these outcomes. The internship placement assists in developing employment skills, knowledge and contacts, which can contribute to the student's career goals. Academic supervision is provided to assist students in identifying the capabilities they need to develop and to provide support and advice during the internship. The terms and time frame of the internship are flexible and may be negotiated between the student, industry or cultural partner, and full-time academic staff. Students are assisted to reflect on their learning experience in the workplace in the context of their studies.
