There are two options in our post graduate programs to take an internship. These are restricted entry courses which can be taken for-credit and not-for-credit.  Consent of POLSIS must be obtained prior to enrolment. The internship allows students to develop their research, analytical and communication skills while they acquire practical and professional knowledge in a workplace setting.  The Internship must be negotiated in advance and students should contact the course coordinator approximately twelve weeks prior to the beginning of semester in which they wish to undertake the Internship. All additional costs incurred by students undertaking an internship remain the responsibility of the student.
