Intern in Australia

An internship in Australia presents a unique opportunity to be completely immersed in the culture and work environment down under!  Working and learning alongside locals provides a unique insight into the beauty, culture, and customs of the Aussies.  Whether you complete your internship researching starfish on the Great Barrier Reef or working at a 5-star hotel in the heart of Sydney - our Custom Placement Service will match your internship to your field of study.  Select our optional tour package and you’ll get a guidebook, tour of your host city, and an excursion to visit places like Magnetic Island where you can cuddle with koalas or spend a day zip-lining through the trees!  Inspire yourself to start a new adventure!


Your internship placement will be customized to you and your goals in your chosen field.  Your resume/CV and cover letter (describing the types of internship placements you would like and the skills you wish to work on during the program) are used to search for your placement.  Our placement coordinators work with a large variety of companies and the organization you are placed with will be determined by many factors including company needs along with your education, experience, and background.

I really enjoy working with my host company.  I am learning so much about my field that I feel completely prepared for full-time employment once I graduate.  I am extremely grateful for my company’s patience with me as I am learning soooo much.
