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.
Check with your Allocated Course Advice Office for further information about the unit you would be eligible to enrol into.
The internships unit is assessed as an Ungraded Pass/Fail. To successfully complete the program, students must:
- Complete 100 hours community service in the organisation they are appointed to
- Submit all required internship paperwork on time
- Undertake an additional 20–30 hours of learning tasks including compulsory sessions and assessments. The timetable below lists the compulsory introductory lectures well in advance. Applicants should ensure they can attend these sessions before applying for the program.
Program requirements are detailed in the Handbook and the Student Interns Guide.
Once enrolled, the Unit Guide and LMS are your primary sources of unit information and internship progress.
