The internship (undergraduate) is aimed at helping students gain real world experiences in a range of professional industries. By working with professionals, students will be able to acquire skills that will help prepare them for the transition from university to the work place. In applying the knowledge acquired in the classroom, students will be able to broaden their understanding of the discipline. The coursework component of the unit will require students to engage in a critical reflective process and this will be evidenced by completion of at least one of the following:
critical portfolio, internship reports, critical research essays, or through alternative assessment as appropriate to the specific parameters of the internship.

  1. Obtain practical experience in a professional sector.
