Project Review

Internship in Australia - the perfect opportunity to gain international professional job experience. A year down under is a must in any potential gap year abroad. So why not gain some professional experience in your chosen industry by taking part in an internship abroad in Australia. Internships abroad are a great way for people to expand their career opportunities and gain real life professional work experience in a country far removed from what they’re used to. This programme offers you the chance to spend between 4 weeks and 6 months working in an Australian company, gaining firsthand knowledge of an area of work that interests you – thus giving you a valuable insight into your chosen field and improving your future employment possibilities. 

Major Responsibilities

We’re currently offering internships for two types of participant...

1. Internships for graduates/students:

For graduates and students with at least one year of tertiary study in their chosen field. People choose to do an internship in Australia because it allows them to mix work with pleasure both during and after their internship. Participants will have the chance to travel and experience the Australian lifestyle, embracing all the beauty that this amazing country has to offer.

2. Gap year internship placements:

The Gap Year Internship Programme is proving to be a popular option for high school leavers who who have no specialised skill set, but would like to gain some work experience in Australia. It is ideal for participants looking to add some professional experience to their travels. Taking some time out between school and college/university is a growing trend and employers are beginning to take notice of applicants who have international experience on their CV's/resumes.
