Internship Requirements+

Interns are selected on a competitive basis and are matched to suitable roles. Students undertake their internship through enrolment in a UWA McCusker Centre for Citizenship Internship unit. To be considered in the matching process, applicants confirm they understand and agree to the terms and conditions below.

Active Engagement: I will fully engage with the Internships unit, observe assessments and attend all compulsory sessions, including the introductory sessions. I understand that any absence will require Special Consideration.

Course Compatibility: I have verified that I have space for a 6-point elective unit within my course or I will complete the unit as a Micro-credential with the UWA+ Program.

Seminar attendance: I will attend the Introduction to Active Citizenship seminar, the Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training and Seminar 3, and I will book the session through CAS after my placement is confirmed.

Timely Communication: I commit to promptly responding to communication from the McCusker Centre, typically via student email, phone, or MS Teams.

Program Purpose: I understand that the McCusker Centre Internship Program emphasises service to the community and differs from work experience or Work Integrated Learning. Please review our purpose on the website.

Service Hours: I will complete 100 hours of community service with the appointed organisation, to the best of my abilities.

Competitive Nature: I acknowledge the program's competitive nature and that some applications might not be successful.

Role Acceptance: If offered a role and I decline, I understand I might not receive another offer in this round.

Program requirements are detailed in the Handbook and the Internship Guide for Students. Once enrolled, this guide and LMS are your primary sources of unit information and internship progress.

Eligibility Requirements+

To be eligible for our program, you must:

  • Be a currently enrolled UWA student
  • Be of good standing with a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 50 or above
  • Have good interpersonal skills
  • Have good written and spoken communication skills

Postgraduate/Honours students only

Be eligible via Student Advising Office approval (you will need to request this at the point of application, see application form for details)

How to Apply+

  1. Review your study plan and consider your other commitments to ensure that you can undertake an internship as part of your course.
  2. Read the Internship Guide for Students to familiarise yourself with the program requirements.
  3. View the list of internships on offer below. This will give you an idea of the types of roles we have available this round. However, please note your application is for the program, not a specific role.
  4. Consider if you will need a Working with Children Check and/or a National Police Clearance. Be prepared to obtain these before starting your internship, including covering any associated expenses.
  5. Review the Dates and Deadlines section (these dates may be subject to change but are a good guide).
  6. Seek the additional information you may need. Check askUWA, or email the Internships Team.
  7. Prepare a current CV, for which UWA Careers and Employability can assist you. You can find the Résumé Factsheet here.
  8. Submit your application via our webform above. Please answer all questions carefully - it is a good idea to draft and workshop answers first (e.g. in Word), then copy them into the application form. Strong applications will be well written, provide good detail about your skills and experiences, and align closely with the program's ethos of active citizenship.

What Happens Next?+

Our program is competitive; there are always more applications than roles. Your application will be considered for its quality and suitability to available roles. We take into account your CV, answers to application questions, areas of interest and identified skills.

Please check your student email regularly; this is how we will contact you if we have any questions. After the closing date of applications, you will be asked to confirm that you still wish to be considered.

Applicants are then matched to roles based on their interests and skills and the specific requirements of the available roles. When selecting and matching, preferences will usually, but not always, be given to:

• Applications ranked highly;

• Applications that indicate a ‘for credit’ unit option;

• Applicants who have not undertaken an Internship with the centre before; and

• Applicants who are enrolled in the Active Citizenship Minor.

These criteria cannot be strictly observed because the Internships Coordinator needs to consider best suitability to available roles based on the applicant’s course of study, preferences indicated in the application, and other skills identified by the applicant.

By the outcome date (listed in Dates and Deadlines) you will be notified of the outcome of your application. If successfully matched to an internship role, you will receive further instructions about enrolment. If your application is unsuccessful, you are strongly encouraged to try again in a future round.

Many internships incur small incidental costs, like any university unit. These are minimal and, in most cases, less than the cost of text books. For example, you may be required to obtain a Police Clearance, Working with Children Check, or a sector-specific screening check. You will also need to factor in transport costs (i.e. fuel or public transport).

Helping people not just live longer, but live a more healthy and fulfilling life. Currently around 4,500 West Australians every week participate in a Strength for Life class, accredited by COTA WA, which has run the Program for over 10 years.

This project would be to do a deep dive into our existing business model and to make a business case for change - including financial modeling, analyzing the market and customer base, and helping understand competitive forces in the fitness industry.

Heritage Support Intern

Department of Planning Lands & Heritage — Winter (June - July)

In 2018 the Thematic History of WA was completed for the Heritage Council by Historian Clare Menck. With its completion, and a maturing of our view of cultural heritage significance, some consideration of how best to achieve a more effective and representative Register of Western Australia’s heritage places seems timely. A full review of the State Register of Heritage Places and places marked for assessment is in progress. The review is investigating gaps in the State Register and the best means by which to address them. Some of the gaps identified to date are stories relating to Aboriginal people, women, non-British migrants and workers & working. The next stage of the review will include analysis of the results and a series of agenda items being prepared for the Heritage Council so it can consider whether some places may not meet the threshold for the State Register, and which places, if updated or progressed, will enrich the Register making it more representative. It is proposed that the intern will assist with the analysis and compilation of the items for the Heritage Council. The role would be suited to a student studying a heritage related degree such as History, Archaeology, Architecture, or Cultural Heritage Management. Good writing and analysis skills will be valuable, as will an interest in and passion for Western Australian history and heritage.
