Study Abroad + Internship

The ACU Study Abroad plus Internship combination allows you to enrol in 2-3 elective units while also taking a professional internship at a local company. Our internship program is designed to help you:

  • Experience the Australian work culture
  • Develop work-related skills
  • Strengthen cross-cultural communication skills
  • Engage in the local community
  • Establish industry networks and contacts

The internship unit involves the successful completion of 120 hours (10 hours per week for 12 weeks) undertaking a negotiated learning experience in a professional workplace. All internships are unpaid, but the exposure will be an invaluable experience and will boost your resume. Consider the internship an investment in your future career!
