International Internships

In today’s highly globalised world, employers really value those with international experience. It allows for greater cross-cultural understanding, and opens up new avenues of thinking, bringing a fresh perspective into a business. An international internship will be a transformative experience, highlighting that you are willing to go above and beyond to achieve your goals.

Emily Dang, Solidaritas Perempuan (Jakarta) intern

The experience was really challenging and rewarding. I really learned and grew a lot, developing professional and personal skills: language, communication, cultural adaptations and being able to form relationships with people in a variety of settings.

Expand your Exchange

Completing an internship in the period before or after your international exchange will allow you to gain extra credit, or reduce your workload during the regular semester.

Funding

International internships don’t have to be prohibitively expensive. There are a number of scholarship options available, including New Colombo Plan grants, and through Monash Abroad. Doing an internship as part of an exchange program also means you can tap into OS-HELP loans to help fund your trip. Consider an international internship as an investment in yourself.
