Public Policy Professional Experience offers Crawford School students the opportunity to acquire practical experience working within a public policy related environment. This practical experience is designed to complement studies undertaken as part of the coursework component of Crawford School degrees.


Opportunities are self-sourced and are, for example, attached to a relevant government department, think tank, media outlet, or non-governmental organisation and can be undertaken within Australia or, in rare instances, internationally subject to the student being able to bear the financial costs and to meet the visa requirements associated with the country concerned.



Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Apply knowledge gained from Crawford School Masters courses in a public policy-relevant organisational environment
  2. Develop an in-depth understanding regarding the rationale for and operating modalities of the host organisation
  3. Clarify professional and career interests in the context of present and future employment in the public policy environment
  4. Develop relationships with policy makers and organisations in areas relevant to their Crawford School degree
