Aside from graduating with an undergraduate degree, the next most important area of a student’s resume, is work experience. This allows a student to put their classroom knowledge into practice in a real world business environment, and should assist students in finding a job on graduation.

Internship programs in all locations run during the US Summer, commencing around May or June. Global Academic Ventures manages internship programs in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, and Germany. Students are able to select where to undertake their summer internship experience, however the ultimate placement within a local company depends on the student’s skills, previous experience, studies and the company’s preference.

Students are expected to intern for a minimum period of 8 weeks, full time, for a company’s normal business hours. All students are strongly encouraged to participate in company meetings, client meetings, networking events and out of hours corporate events. An internship experience is designed to help each student expand their understanding of their chosen career field.
