Not for Credit Internship

An opportunity to undertake paid work in your industry and enhance your career readiness.

  • This might be a good opportunity for you if …
    • You are seeking short term opportunities (you can work at up to 3 organisations)
    • You would like the ability to gain experience in several different organisations
    • You don’t have enough points left to complete the “for credit internship” (ENGR90033: Internship needs 25 points)
  • What is required of me?

    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, all internships need to be undertaken remotely until further notice. This means that you will need to work from home rather than physically attending the workplace. Internships involving attendance at an organisation's premises or other workplace outside your home will not be approved at this time. If government restrictions and advice change during the course of your internship, we will consider requests to transition back to physical attendance at the workplace.

    • You will need to undertake 350 hours of self-sourced paid work experience in a role relevant to your degree.
    • The 350 hours must be reached within a 12-month period and can include a maximum of three opportunities.
    • Students will be responsible for arranging their own internship and must have the internship approved prior to using the position for the Engineering Practice Hurdle.
    • Your Host Organisation will also need to sign the University’s internship agreement.
    • All internships must be in Australia.
    • During your internship you will be required to submit a minimum of three written reflective reports of 500 words each with a minimum of 1 written reflection at each internship.
    • Please submit your application for approval to the MSE Student Enrichment Team before you start your internship/s.
    • Unfortunately we cannot backdate any internships that have already been started or completed.
    • Students will be responsible for arranging their own internship and must have the internship approved prior to using the position for the Engineering Practice Hurdle.
    • Your Host Organisation will also need to sign the University’s internship agreement prior to your commencement date.
