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.

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 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
  • Be eligible via faculty approval (you will need to request this at the point of application - see application form for details)
  • Have good interpersonal skills
  • Have good written and spoken communication skills

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. You will also receive an email from your faculty (via askUWA) with the result of your faculty approval (note: this is a step in the process and not a final internship outcome). 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 ($16.70), Working with Children Check ($11.00), or a sector-specific screening check (approx. $10.00). You will also need to factor in transport costs (i.e. fuel or public transport).

International FND Awareness Day is held every year on April 13, initiated by FND Hope in 2013. It aims to promote awareness, support patients, and advance research for the prevention and treatment of FND. FND refers to a disorder that breaks down the communication between the brain and the body. There is a problem with how the nervous system functions despite both the brain and body are functioning correctly. FND is reportedly the second-most prevalent neurological diagnosis, yet the exact cause of FND is unknown. Biological factors, such as early childhood trauma, anxiety, or maltreatment, and sociological factors like relationships and stress can trigger an episode. Successful management of FND requires early and effective communication between patient and treating practitioners, a clear explanation of the diagnosis and education for receiving the correct treatment. The Neurological Council seeks assistance from allied health or health promotion interns to develop a Health Promotional Campaign, launching on International FND Awareness Day, to raise awareness of the condition including understanding and communicating the symptoms, possible causes, prevention, treatment pathways, and resources available.
