We have partnered with a company that finds internships in several fields but is also very flexible AND affordable for our students. We are offering this program at our three campuses

Of course your first question will be: Can I do an internship with my visa? The answer is yes, if you hold a visa that allows you to work while you are studying in Australia. However please note that this will be counted within the number of hours that you are allowed to work under your visa rights.

Under a working holiday visa you would be able to:

  • Study up to 17 weeks (full-time or part-time)
  • Do an internship for 4, 6, 8 or 12 weeks (full-time or part-time*)

*Full-time internship = approximately 30 hours per week (after the course)

* Part-time time internship = up to 20 hours per week (during or after the course)

Under a student visa you would be able to:

  • Study at least for 12 weeks (full-time only)
  • Do an internship for 4, 6 or 8 weeks (full-time or part-time*)
