We partner with leading organisations to create paid internships for full-time university students who are asylum seekers or refugees. Internships provide industry experience and insight into career options – both of which are important in making a smooth transition from university to employment.
Internships are suitable for students in the early years of their degree, who are studying courses that don’t typically require a mandatory placement. Internships last 12 weeks and are completed over the summer university break, or split between the winter and summer university breaks.
There is no cost to participate, however students need to actively participate in the program and attend all workshops and events.
Currently, the program is open to students who meet the following criteria:
- Asylum seeker or refugee enrolled in full-time tertiary studies
- Attending university in Melbourne or Sydney
- Completing one of the following degrees: Science, Engineering (all types), Commerce / Business (all majors), Information Technology, Mathematics, Law, Arts
