Deakin Internship Scheme

Students sitting in campus
As part of Deakin’s strategic plan LIVE the future, the Deakin Internship Scheme aims to nurture the personal development of Deakin students. Essential to the 'Experience' promise, an Internship at Deakin will provide students with an opportunity to gain practical workplace experience whilst applying knowledge and theory gained during their studies.

The Internship consists of an unpaid placement within an area of the University for a minimum of 100 hours to work on a specific project, task/s or operational activity.

The student must complete an Internship unit and associated assessments at the same time as the Internship.

Incorporated into the Internship, is the Intern 'Get Together Day' - a developmental day designed to provide tools, hints and tips to assist students with the transition from University to the workforce.

Internships have been offered in many areas of Deakin including Human Resources, Marketing, Finance, Information Technology, Business Administration, Construction Management and Governance among others.

To enquire about internship opportunities at Deakin, please complete the register of interest.
