6. Domestic Internships

Domestic Internships 2022 – COVID notice

UQ will make every effort to offer internship opportunities as advertised. However, the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, including changes to Government health restrictions that may be implemented during the coming months, could result in changes to the availability or mode of internships (i.e. face to face internships may transition to virtual experiences). We continue to strive to ensure a range of internships and other employability opportunities remain accessible to students as far as is safe and practicable. For further information and ongoing updates refer to https://about.uq.edu.au/coronavirus/students.

Before you travel you must complete an online Travel Declaration (as part of your UQ Domestic and Virtual Internship Application Workflow). A Travel Declaration must be completed for activities that require:

  • travel more than 50km from your usual place of residence; and
  • an overnight stay (minimum of one night)

The Declaration outlines your responsibilities while engaging in this travel and provides information on the UQ processes in place to ensure your safety and support while engaging in your internship. By completing the Travel Declaration you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and accepted these responsibilities.

UQ continues to provide all students with appropriate and relevant insurances during their internships (i.e. professional liability and WorkCover). However, UQ does not have travel insurance coverage for any claims relating to COVID-19 for domestic travel booked after 4pm (AEDT) on 2 March 2020.
