The Internship or Practical Research subject requires students to complete 10 weeks of unpaid work experience with a minimum of 200 total hours over the trimester. This equates to approximately 20 hours per week with the host company working on a practical project set by the organisation. This gives you practical experience working in an Australian business environment to complement your theoretical knowledge.
Being part of a corporate team and working together with various business units over the duration of the internship will give you a thorough understanding and invaluable insight into the Australian corporate world – enhancing your career opportunities.
JCU Brisbane recognises that employers highly value professional experience and demonstrable employability skills, this program will give you the advantage.
Only students who demonstrate professional conduct and strong academic results throughout their studies will be considered for the internship program. Ultimately it is the employer who makes the final decision to host a student therefore the students’ professionalism, communication skills and engagement with the process is critical.
