Please contact your Program Coordinator if you wish to enrol in this course.

This course provides students with an opportunity to gain credit towards their degree in the Crawford School of Public Policy by undertaking a self-sourced internship.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to work under professional supervision, and gain useful background of a professional context and how that workplace operates.
  2. Demonstrate negotiating and interpersonal skills.
  3. Apply theoretical knowledge and tools learned in coursework to a research project that is tied to the internship experience.
  4. Exercise critical thinking and judgment in the context of developing advanced professional knowledge.
  5. Clarify personal and professional goals regarding future career interests.

Other Information

Students will work with an academic supervisor to discuss tailored learning outcomes for their placement, as well as workload and assessment pieces. Although the requirements will vary depending on the length of the placement/workload, all participants are expected to undertake the assessment as detailed under the 'Study' tab.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Statement of Expectations. The statement of expectations should outline the knowledge, skills and experience expected to be gained from the internship and include a copy of the position description. (15) [LO 3,5]
  2. Reflective journal. 2000 words. The journal should include between 4 and 6 entries and demonstrate learning during the internship, and reflect on how concepts and issues explored in the classroom have helped students understand observations and make sense of experiences during the internship. (25) [LO 1,4]
  3. Research paper, 5-7000 words. The research paper should address a policy or governance question related to the placement and should be discussed/agreed with the supervisor at the start of the internship. Internship research papers are stand-alone documents for assessment by academic standards, and are not documents which have been drafted by interns as part of internship work requirements. However, documents on which students have worked as part of their internships may be used to inform the research paper. (60) [LO 1,2,3]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

The self-sourced internship should provide a minimum of 130 hours assessment & internship combined.
