About the Program

The McCusker Centre for Citizenship is partnering with not for profit, community organisations and government to provide a structured quality internship program for students. Through the internship program, students can make a difference and contribute to the complex social issues in our community. Our interns come from across all faculties.

Internships are normally for a minimum of 100 hours, and can be completed in a block period over the summer or winter break or over a semester, depending on what works for both the organisation and student. Students can receive academic credit towards their undergraduate and postgraduate studies on completion of their internship.

Students are matched based on their application and the internship opportunities available.
