Independent Internships

Organising an independent internship with a host organisation that you choose is a great way to network directly with professionals working in your industry, and prepare for your graduate job search. Internships give you the opportunity to gain practical experience supervised by a professional in your discipline.

While most students will organise their own internship by reaching out to a host organisation directly, we do always have a number of internship opportunities available for you to apply for. Internship opportunities advertised on the Jobs and Internships Board have been pre-assessed for suitability, and will list the credit information directly in the internship listing.

To help you prepare, secure, and register your internship for credit in your course, we have prepared an easy 3-step guide: Internship Process for Students.

To check out current independent opportunities, check out the Jobs and Internships Board.
