Participants will work with our internship partner, CAPA International Education, to identify and secure an ideal placement. Placements will take the form of a traditional internship (11 weeks, 16 hours per week).
Students will also participate in a complementary course that allows for critical and analytical reflection on how the internship experience impacts their understanding of Australian culture and relates to personal and professional goals. Upon successful completion of this internship program, students will be awarded 4 credits.
