This unit offers students the opportunity to apply and consolidate the knowledge and professional skills they have acquired through the course within the practical context of an international development-related organisation. It requires independent learning and research by the student while fostering practical knowledge and skills related to the student's Area of Concentration. Students undertake an internship-based client project with an international development-related organisation. In the internship, research and analytical work of direct benefit to the host organisation will be carried out and reported on. The internship will not be undertaken in the student's usual workplace.


Upon successfully completing this unit, students will:

  1. Have acquired specialised skills in a particular area of international development and environmental analysis;
  2. Have completed relevant research and/or job study that demonstrates their contribution to the field of international development and environmental sustainability in their chosen area of concentration.
