Internship: Students be required to complete an internship
Internship enrolment is subject to completion of specified prerequisite units and special application requirements. Interested students should look at the Faculty Student Mobility website information and are strongly advised to complete the pre internship modules
The purpose of the unit is to allow campus based students who have completed 8 credit points of their Master of Arts (International Relations) and who are in their final trimester of study, to take up a work or volunteer placement within a host organisation in Australia or overseas. The placement will assist them to gain an understanding of a workplace environment associated with their area of study, as well as undertake a specific project which makes a meaningful contribution. The basic principle of the Internship is that it should further the interests of both the students and the host organisation.
The Internship unit offers students an opportunity to gain first hand work experience in a region or employment sector closely associated with topics studied at university, and to explore the practical applications of their academic study. Students are expected to complete a 150-160 hours of work experience in their chosen site. The unit provides a framework for student assessment of their knowledge, skills and work choices in relation to the practices and implementation of selected topics in International Relations.
