We recommend discussing internships with your students as early as possible. We believe supervisors are the best point of contact for internship advice, as they can conceptualise possible research projects and make recommendations for suitable industry partners.
There are four main approaches to sourcing an internship:
A connection already exists with an industry partner who has a suitable research project that meets the eligibility requirements.
If you do not have an existing industry contact, please view Curtin’s industry partner list and contact ROC.GRS@curtin.edu.au if you would like to approach any of these organisations, as our team will gather some background information e.g., existing internship quota, and make a recommendation on next steps.
External providers such as APR Intern or iPrep advertise a range of internship opportunities for PhD students throughout the year.
If a student’s work meets the internship eligibility criteria, the Graduate Research School simply requires evidence in order to progress an internship incentive payment. Please send documentation to ROC.GRS@curtin.edu.au and we will provide advice on next steps.
Internship and employment opportunities are advertised on the student recruitment portal (UniHub) throughout the year.
