Program Information:

On Intern in Australia, you’ll find that our internships are customized to match your interests and your desired length of stay in Australia. You can choose a 6, 8, or 12-week internship. You also get to choose where you want to intern. Do you want to live in historic Sydney or hip Melbourne? Regardless of what you choose, here are some things to expect while on this unique program:
  • A custom internship placement – We understand that you aren’t traveling to Australia to brew coffee and make photocopies. Luckily, your internship in Australia is tailored to fit: we will find you a placement that takes into account your career goals, interests, and skills.
     
  • Your choice of accommodation – Intern in Australia provides you with a few options when it comes to housing. You can live with an Australian family or share an apartment with other student interns who will also work in Sydney!
     
  • Live the “work hard, play hard” mentality – Although Australians take their workday quite seriously, they take their time off seriously as well. Catch an Aussie Rules Football match, hang out in a local pub, go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef with other interns.
