Internships provide an opportunity for anyone looking to gain hands-on experience in an area of interest.
The Arts Internship will equip you with a range of practical skills, built on the knowledge you have gained during your study.
The Arts Internship is a six unit course designed for final year students. It gives you the opportunity to link up with an external organisation that aligns with your major study area and career aspirations. This usually involves spending up to a day a week in the organisation, providing you with hands-on experience to equip you with a range of practical skills.
The major focus of the internship is for students to undertake a specified project on a topic both relevant to the organisation and of interest to the student. The project culminates in a research report (of approximately 7,000 words) and interns deliver an overview to their supervisor/s and peers via an oral presentation. The organisation may then use the report in any way they see fit.
If you are interested in the Arts Internship, please submit an online application form for a placement commencing in July-October (second semester). Students are selected on merit.
