If you are taking part in our undergraduate program, you have the opportunity to include a degree credit internship in your third year which provides the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a variety of development related organisations internationally. Through ARTS3758 Global Change Internship, you gain international exposure and a deeper understanding of the political, social and cultural context of a development context.
This internship provides a one-of-a-kind experience to help you understand context-sensitive development in practice and gain valuable professional experience. Past student interns have described it as a ‘life-changing experience’. ARTS3759 is a prepatory course which is completed in conjunction with ARTS3758.
If you are interested in applying, please note that student cannot enrol themselves into this course. This is obtained by submitting an EOI and undertaking a selection interview. Once successful the WIL Unit will enrol you into both courses.
Use the self-enrolment key “wil_internship” to access the Moodle page.
"My internship with ChildFund Laos was an empowering and rewarding experience. Through the hands-on learning, I was able to transfer some theory to real life practices, which elucidated to me the concepts of development and implications of ethical practices. The internship has given me an invaluable real-life taste of working in development. I have gained not only a better understanding of the professional expectations from the industry, but also an opportunity to enhance my cultural competence and essential soft skills required for future career development."
