Monash Sourced Placements

What is a Monash Sourced placement?

The WIL team contact a host organisation and arrange specifically defined placements.  Monash Sourced placements may be with a host organisation either in Australia or overseas.  ALL host organisations must meet Monash University OHS guidelines and be approved to be part of the WIL program.  Students are not required to be paid during their placements as they receive academic credit for their placements.  The WIL team does not ask any host to provide payment to students for Monash Sourced Placements.

What kind of Monash Sourced placements are available?

Our placements are specifically secured for students studying the full range of programs in an Arts Undergraduate degree. Please note: our team does not source journalism or psychology placements.  We work with over 400 partner host organisations, so a wide range of options are available. The list below is an indication of the opportunities currently available during Winter 2019. This is not an exhaustive list and will be updated from time to time, but you may like to indicate a preference for one of these opportunities in your application.  These placements can be undertaken as a free elective or can count towards a major (with approval).

Not sure which internship to apply for?

If you are unsure what type of internship you would like to undertake, please apply anyway. You will be asked to provide your major, areas of interest and skills or activities you would like to do, and if your application is successful, we will use this to match you with one of our partner hosts and placements.

If you have a very specific idea of the placement you would like or the organisation you would like to undertake a placement with, you may like to consider applying for a student sourced placement.  See our Find your own internship page for information on how to approach an organisation and apply to use this as a WIL placement.
