The Australian National Internships Program (ANIP) allows you to obtain valuable workplace experience while gaining significant academic credit towards your postgraduate coursework degree. The program is open to any enrolled student at an Australian or overseas university, from any discipline. ANIP interns have been placed in Parliament House, Canberra’s Legislative assembly and in a wide range of government and non-government organisations.
As part of your internship you will complete a research project and produce a report for your host organisation. This will help you to develop your project management, organisational, research, communication and teamwork skills.
