Australian Internships & Work Experience

Work Experience in Australia

Gain Work Experience in Australia

Participating in an international internship will give you the option of combining academic study with practical, career-related experience while studying abroad or travelling abroad. This is an excellent opportunity for those who want to gain work experience in their chosen field before graduating and entering today's competitive job market.

The internships offered through International Internship Program are not administrative placements so you will not spend your time filing, answering phones or making copies (although this may be involved). Our internship placements are project based and will allow you to provide a beneficial service to the organization at which you are interning, while gaining valuable training and experience.

You may be considering an overseas work experience for many reasons:
in an adventure, a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of another culture and of yourself, an expensive way to improve foreign language proficiency, or as preparation for an international career.

Choosing a work or study destination abroad that offers work opportunities has become a main deciding factor for many students. Students are looking for internships to support their studies or to gain valuable international work experience, which will assist them get a job when they return home.
Australia provides students with a range of work opportunities.

More about our internship program

We work in partnership with other organisations for professional internship programs:

  • Australian Internships

However, most students have little or no skills or work experience and lack confidence in their English skills to approach prospective employers.

These days, employers usually request written proof of training or industry experience and are looking for confident English speakers who are motivated, enthusiastic, confident and responsible.

The best time to seek work abroad and to prepare for an international career is while you are a student or soon after graduation and at least 3 months before you like to start your internship.
