The Internship is based on a mutually agreed partnership between the student and an external organisation. The student agrees to carry out a research project on a topic/issue of direct interest to the external organisation. In return, the external organisation agrees to provide the support necessary for the project to be completed within a definite time-frame. Secondary supervision is also provided by an academic staff member from the School. There are restrictions placed on both the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses, as such students interested in this course should in the first instance contact the School via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (07) 3346 9544 several weeks prior to the beginning of semester (at least 12 for POLS7512) to confirm their eligibility to apply. All additional costs incurred by students undertaking this course remain the responsibility of the student.
