Whether you’re a current higher education student or a recent graduate in Australia, here you will find information on internships that we coordinate in Australia.

Interns in Australia

Australia is a great country for students and recent graduates looking for work experience and industry exposure through internships.

It’s a country of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). There are lots of opportunities for students looking to make their mark and gain work experience as interns.

Not all internship opportunities are advertised. CareerDC has developed a network of host companies across Australia that regularly open their doors to interns in need of industry exposure and skills development.

From start-ups to more established companies and businesses, there are plenty of opportunities out there – it’s about matching interns with the most suitable host companies.

Australian Cities Popular With Interns

Sydney and Melbourne are the top two cities in Australia preferred by interns. It’s no wonder; they are the two biggest cities in the country and host a number of universities popular with international and domestic students.

If your preferred Australian city is not on the list, you can ask us about it as we may well be able to customise an internship program for you in your preferred Australian location.

What Is an Internship in Australia

The internship programs we coordinate in Australia are vocational placements. An internship program with a placement usually runs for 12 weeks.

The internship gives the intern exposure to the industry of their studies. It’s often the very first time the student intern gets practical and hands-on experience in a real work environment.

The internship we facilitate for both international and domestic students in Australia carry academic credit and form part of the student's degree.

Students who want to intern but don’t have an internship component in their degree can do a placement through the WIL Program as can new graduates.
