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).

Grants Support Intern

Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association — Semester 1 (February - May)

In the post-COVID-19 era, many seniors have become isolated in their computing needs as traditional face-to-face services closed down, and some of the online options have now gone as well due to it being deemed unnecessary once COVID-19 became less of an issue in the community. As such there are a lot of seniors who are disconnected and there’s a need to bring them back to clubs, or if there’s not a club nearby, establish a dedicated Australia-wide e-club. The issue is that although online communities do work, they often require face-to-face support initially to understand the process and get the equipment set up. The Intern will, after an extensive introduction to ASCCA, including its 20-year history, goals, and aims, have a good understanding of the current status that has developed since the onset of Covid, and the need for support funding in order to continue as National Peak Body supporting seniors in technology, in a new, sometimes isolated, digital environment. The role will entail researching suitable grants and other opportunities that will fit and support the intended direction going forward.

Research Intern - CLICK Migrant and Refugee Study

Telethon Kids Institute (TKI) — Semester 1 (February - May)

This overarching project aims to determine the needs of mental health professionals who work to support the mental health of young people through a series of online surveys on varying topics. We are about to launch a survey on mental health professionals working with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds also experience significant barriers to obtaining appropriate mental health support, such as low mental health literacy and a reluctance to seek out professional support due to stigmatisation as members of minority social groups. Research demonstrates that culturally responsive mental health support services are more effective in meeting the needs of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds and their families, however there is limited knowledge as to the cultural awareness and competency of mental health professionals in working with this population. This study will illuminate the current knowledge and confidence of Australian mental health professionals in working with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, and will demonstrate the capacity for improvement available within the health care system in Australia to better support these young people. The research intern will assist with literature reviews, participant recruitment, and survey distribution.

Research Intern - LGBTQA+ Suicide Prevention Guideline Implementation

Telethon Kids Institute (TKI) — Semester 1 (February - May)

This project aims to implement LGBTQA+ youth suicide prevention guidelines in clinical and community services in Western Australia. These guidelines were developed using the Delphi consensus method and were launched in 2022. To implement the guidelines we will develop a training program which we will deliver to community and clinical service providers in WA. An evaluation will be conducted to determine the effectiveness of this training program. LGBTQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or gender diverse, queer/questioning, asexual and other diverse sexualities and genders) young people (aged 14-25) are at high risk of suicide. Various studies have estimated LGBTQA+ young people to be between two to six times as likely to report thinking about suicide, engaging in suicidal behaviour and/or having made a suicide attempt, compared to their heterosexual and cisgender peers. Studies also show that this elevated risk of suicidality begins early. Due to this risk, there is urgent need for clinical services which serve LGBTQA+ young people to engage in appropriate suicide prevention practices for this group. The intern will assist with this study as we develop the training and the study questionnaires.

Research Intern - The ORIGINS Project - Tongue and Lip Tie Analysis

Telethon Kids Institute (TKI) — Semester 1 (February - May)

The ORIGINS Project is a prospective, longitudinal birth cohort, recruiting 10,000 pregnant women and their partners antenatally and following each family over a five-year period. Lots of different types of data have been collected, including data concerning tongue and lip tie. Tongue or lip tie is when the tissue connecting the front of the tongue to the floor of the mouth, or that connecting the upper lip to the gums, respectively, is so short or thick that it limits the movement of the tongue. There is some concern as to whether this impacts on breast feeding, and so infant weight, and language development. Hence, clinicians may manage tongue/lip tie with breastfeeding support or frenulotomy, where the tissue is released with a blade or laser. According to the Medical Journal of Australia (2018), there has been 420% increase in frenulotomies, which can be expensive for families, and it's not clear whether it is beneficial in regard to longer term outcomes. This study will examine whether there is any relationship between outcomes such as infant BMI, breastfeeding, and language development according to tongue/lip tie status and treatment. The study will also examine whether there is a difference in diagnosis and management according to hospital and clinician. The student will assist with data analysis, presentation and write up (results and discussion, as well as initial literature review). The student may present at journal club as well.
