Australia - Paid Internships
The Department of Immigration advises that living expenses will cost around AUD 1000 per month including housing, food, fun and incidentals.
Global Choices wants you to enjoy your stay in Australia and we are happy to assist with your accommodation arrangements. Following are brief descriptions of the accommodation options available to you:
Global Choices recommends homestay as a great personal introduction and welcome to the daily life in Australia. Living with an Australian family will give you a unique insight into the culture and values of the country and assist in preparing you for the business environment.
All homestay families are carefully selected and keen to ensure that you enjoy your visit to Australia. After indicating your homestay preferences, Global Choices will take the time to make sure that you have a homestay provided that meets your specific needs.
The fees for homestay vary and are influenced by your choice of location. If you choose this option when you first arrive you will be asked to pay the equivalent of four weeks’ fees, after which you may pay the host family directly.
For Agricultural Internships please note: Homestay is the only accommodation option and is free.
Many interns prefer to find their own accommodation but they still ask us to arrange initial accommodation for their arrival. Several inexpensive and safe hostels are available at each location. Prices start from AU$18 per night or AU$125 per week. Specific information will be supplied at your request. For detailed information on hostels please visit www.hostelworld.com.
Shared accommodation is available at most locations. Many visitors choose to share a flat or unit with other Australian students or young singles, and this option is popular for independent interns who enjoy their own space. We strongly advise that you take the time to meet and view the premises for a share option after your arrival, as they will vary quite dramatically, as will the people providing the accommodation.
Our Participants Speak / Testimonials
Leica - Philippines
“It was more challenging and pressuring than what I expected. I found myself liking the internship, in fact, loving it. After a couple of months of hard work, I was promoted as the Housekeeping Team Leader and then, I was offered the Supervisor's position. The internship program definitely opened the doors of opportunity for me in my chosen field and made me rethink a lot of things. Now, I'm sure that it does not matter if you start at the bottom, for as long as you put your heart into it, work hard, have good timing, and with a little luck success will certainly go your way!"
