Important update

Applications for Winter 2022 Internships experiences will open on 17 January 2022.

A final decision to proceed with the in-person global experiences will be made by late March 2022, based on government health regulations and/or travel restrictions at the time.

The health and safety of our students is a top priority, and this approach allows us to start planning these exciting opportunities whilst maintaining the flexibility to adjust our plans.

UQ’s Internships and Global Experiences Team strongly recommends you do not make any financial commitments (program fees, flights, accommodation, visas, etc.) for an in-person Internship experience in Winter 2022 until after the March decision.

We understand it might be tempting to start making these additional plans, especially for experiences that open applications early and may fill up fast. If you decide to apply and pay for an experience before UQ has confirmed support of in-person global experiences in late March, you do so at your own risk and neither UQ nor the Host Organisation is liable for any expenses or other liabilities incurred.

Domestic internships

Domestic internships take place within an Australia based organisation and provide students with an opportunity to participate in either specific internship projects, or the daily activities of the organisation. This offers students an opportunity to learn how to work in the industry, be a part of professional teams and undertake real industry challenges.

Virtual internships

Virtual internships offer students the same opportunity to experience the inter-workings of a provider organisation but from a remote setting. Unlike domestic opportunities, there will be no expectation of turning up to an office or work-site each day, as the majority of interactions will be completed virtually.

Global internships

Global internships provide students with the opportunity to gain practical exposure to a professional environment in an international setting. Students can experience the benefits of enhancing their employability by interning and living abroad.
