Internships and work placement

Do you have a project that requires further support with specialist skills? Want to bring an enthusiastic and fresh approach to your business with a flexible, low-cost recruitment solution? Would you like an opportunity to get a head start on recruiting the best new graduates for your company? Our students may be the answer.

Offering internships and work placement

Deakin specialises in providing its students with real-life skills and experiences. If you're an employer looking to engage with the next generation of students, we can help. Our students bring a fresh, dynamic approach to developing solutions for your organisation's work tasks and projects.

Students are able to undertake projects that your organisation may not have the resources to explore, particularly not-for-profits and small to medium enterprises. Internship and work placement opportunities often don't require payment at all.

If you are interested in offering an internship or work placement, please complete our expression of interest form.


Lodge and advertise your employment vacancies for free via the Deakin job listing website (powered by Unihub), and reach a broad, versatile candidate base. Unihub is accessed by our current students and recent graduates.
