Students' gateway to Campus


The Deakin Internship Scheme commenced in 2007, known as the HR Business Internship Scheme. Initially offered to commerce students studying Human Resources or Management, the program provided Deakin students an opportunity to complete an Internship within the Human Resources Division (HRD) at Deakin.

After the success in HR, the program was expanded to include other areas of the University. As a result, the HR Business Internship Scheme was retitled the Deakin Internship Scheme (DIS) and was made accessible to more students.

Since then, over 40 students have successfully completed the DIS across both Burwood and Waurn Ponds Campus’. The DIS offers Internships by a number of areas of the University including: Human Resources, Marketing, Finance and eSolutions, with an expansion to other areas soon to come.

In 2013 the DIS will offer more internships to a great number of students.
