The Australian National Internships Program provides students from any discipline with the opportunity to undertake a significant research project within a work place. Academic credit will be awarded towards the students' degrees. Placements are in national institutions (eg government departments and agencies), peak industry bodies, large industry organisations, public policy-focussed NGOs, or international organisations (eg embassies). As part of a real-world experience, students will have the opportunity to work in an office environment, learn to prioritise tasks and deadlines, develop the skills to express themselves concisely and provide a succinct précis of a complex topic.
Admission to this course is selective due to the high academic standards required to successfully complete the course.
The research topic is agreed between the Intern and the placement and topics usually have a focus relevant to both the organisation and the intern. Students attend workshops to assist with the write up of their report and enhance professional skills.
Internship placements may be offered within Australia or overseas, and workshops will be delivered over the course of a semester or in intensive mode. This course is available for cross-Institutional enrolment.
The mandatory orientation workshop runs over two days during Orientation Week.
Admission to this course is selective due to the high academic standards required to successfully complete the course. For more information on the entry process please visit anip.anu.edu.au.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate and apply, with sound understanding, a range of applied research and professional skills;
- source, analyse, synthesise, and interpret information from diverse sources;
- think, write, and argue about complex public policy issues and questions; and
- engage professionally with stakeholders on policy-relevant topics.
