Internship - PICT816

The Department of Security Studies and Criminology (SSC) offers a unique opportunity for students to complete an industry-focused internship as part of their Master’s degree.

There are a number of companies and organisations that host SSC interns, including several multinational consulting firms, IT firms, think tanks, NGOs, a defence contractor and public service organisations.

Expressions of Interest by email are to be submitted by close of business for:
Session 2 – 15 April
Session 1 – 15 September

Students typically spend twelve days on site at the host organisation. Internship placements are made by matching students’ interests and Master’s degree specialisations with a relevant organisation. Students are expected to complete written assessment tasks and a research project for their organisation. These assessment tasks, plus a Workplace Supervisor’s Report, will be graded.

To be considered for the internship, students must have a 70% average in PICT units, demonstrate excellent research and communication skills and be in the latter part of their degree program. SSC cannot guarantee placement in any particular workplace, and placements are made through a competitive process after an initial interview. Students may arrange their own internship placements in a relevant organisation.

Please contact for EOI, as an intern or hosting organisation.
