This course offered by the School of the Arts and Media provides you with an opportunity to undertake industry-engaged learning through internship opportunities with relevant industry hosts. Ideally, you will undertake an internship after you have completed a year of full-time study (or equivalent). 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 can be taken in first, second or third term, or over the summer period. Internship opportunities are advertised via the FASS_WIL_SAM Internship page: Alternatively, you may independently approach a relevant organisation to apply for an internship. Prior to seeking an internship, you may wish to contact UNSW Careers and Employment - for help assembling your CV, cover letter, and other components of your application.
