Work Integrated Learning

Available internships

The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Program regularly advertises internships that are suitable for students enrolling in one of the specifically designed internship units. Depending on your discipline, other opportunities may be made available through your School, and it may also be acceptable for you to source your own internship position.

The internships advertised as part of the WIL Program are all unpaid, and can only be accepted in conjunction with your enrolment in a suitable unit. In many degree programs, these units are only available in your final year. You must check with the unit co-ordinator that you are eligible to enrol in your chosen unit, and that it is available in the required semester, before applying for one of the internship positions.

Applying for an internship is a competitive process. There may be other applicants, not just from your course, but from other universities as well. You are strongly advised to seek assistance with the presentation of your resume and cover letter before submitting an application. The Careers and Employment Centre at Murdoch University can offer advice and will review your resume once you have prepared a draft. They can also offer assistance with preparing for interviews. Many organisations will want to interview students for suitability before offering you an internship position.
