Thinking of a Theatre Internship in 2018?
- Internships can happen any time over the year (Summer or Winter included)
- The best way to think about an internship is to identify the kind of learning you want and the kind of host you want to work with
- You cannot enrol in this unit via WES so contact the unit coordinator with an idea or a proposal
- We will list some internship opportunities here, but we encourage you to identify your own and follow up on them
- Once you are ready to approach a host organisation, get your CV in order and craft and expression if interest (see guide and sample below) and get in touch with the unit coordinator Felix.Nobis@monash.edu
Look over the unit guide and material attached for more information

Some observations from 2017 Education Intern Chloe Smith:
MALTHOUSE PROMPT IS THE YOUTH AND EDUCATION PROGRAM AT MALTHOUSE.
Prompt brings students and teachers together with experienced industry professionals. As a prospective VCE Drama and Theatre Studies teacher, this internship was very valuable. I had the opportunity to work behind the scenes on the 2017 production of The Real and Imagined History of the Elephant Man. I co-created the extensive 60page student/teacher resource for the VCE playlisted production.
My roles and responsibilities throughout the internship in the education department included:
