Study & Intern in Sydney — Internships

Internships

Students participating in the 6-credit internship will enroll in the Learning through Internships course and work 20 hours/week. They are eligible for a 12-credit reduced course-load due to the time commitment required for the internship. Note: This policy excludes Carlson School of Business students who are required to be enrolled in a minimum of 13-credits. Students have the option of participating in a 3-credit internship, but the preference is for students to complete the 6-credit internship. 

Students participating in the 3-credit option will enroll in the Learning through Internships course and work 15 hours/week but are not eligible for the 12-credit reduced course load.  

Over 1000 internship placements are available in almost any field. 2nd semester sophomore, junior, or senior status with a minimum 3.0 GPA is preferred for internships applicants. You will earn 3 summer or 6 semester credits through the internship combined with the Learning through Internships course. All students find out their internship placement about 2 weeks prior to departure. Students are required to submit additional application materials in order to apply for the internship. These material can be found under the Apply tab. Please note that internships are not open to Freshmen.  

Past internships have been in the fields listed below, but this is not a complete list. If you do not see the field you are interested in, inquire at the Learning Abroad Center about the possibility of doing an internship in that field.
