Australia - Professional Internships

The Internships in Australia programme allows you to work in this beautiful, cosmopolitan country, one of the hubs of the Pacific Rim. This is a great way to combine travel with work. A work abroad experience is an incredible way to benefit from an extended holiday and achieve a new outlook on life. Your foreign work experience is sure to impress future employers, since it shows them that you are flexible, independent, and interested in other parts of the world. All intern positions except agricultural are unpaid professional training opportunities where you will gain valuable experience.

For the duration of your stay you will have the option of working from a minimum of one month up to a period of 12 months as an intern with a host Australian employer. The programme is flexible, and you can negotiate terms to suit your needs. Global Choices ensures that you will receive training compatible with your employment and/or educational history. The Australian Professional Internship Programme is your guaranteed entry to a professional work experience in Australia.

Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

Katharina Uredat - Germany

“I really had a good time in Australia and learned a lot. I was satisfied with my host families and my work placement such as the possibility of the intern nights where you could meet many other interns and talk to the supervisors: Consequently you were really in contact with them and they were always ready to support!”
