This course provides you with an opportunity to undertake work-integrated learning and gain industry experience with a host organisation closely related to your Major in English. You may also apply to work on attachment on an academic research project or work in an editorial role for an academic journal. Ideally, you will undertake an internship after you have completed 1.5 years of full-time study (or equivalent) and completed a minimum of 18 UOC in the Major. At the end of the internship you will provide a summative report of your experiences and work examples completed during the internship.
The internship requires a total commitment of 100-150 hours of work with a host organisation and may normally be taken in first, second or summer semester. Internship opportunities are advertised via the School of the Arts and Media Internship Newsletter. Alternatively you may approach a relevant organisation to apply for an internship. Prior to seeking an internship, you should attend an internship information session run by the School of the Arts and Media.
To be eligible for this course, you must have a minimum WAM of 65.
