Admission to this course is selective due to the high academic standards required to successfully complete the course.

Internship placements are for 11 weeks.  The research topic is agreed between the Intern and the placement and topics usually have a public policy focus.  During the Internship students attend workshops on campus to enhance their professional skills.
