Imagine studying in Australia and being part of Sydney’s professional community

Earn academic credit, improve your professional skills and embrace new cultures in one of the world’s most exciting cities. This innovative internship offers you a placement in one of Sydney's leading public institutions or commercial enterprises as well as a research project, courses on Australian society, history and workplace culture and an elective at the University of Sydney.

With strong connections to AEGIS Media, the largest media company in the Southern Hemisphere, a large number of not-for-profits, entrepreneurial start-ups, and corporate and high-level political positions are accessible to students. Arcadia has strong ties throughout the Sydney community to ensure your placement is a perfect fit for you.

Our experienced staff look at your academic and professional background as well as your own learning objectives to find the right placement for you. In the past, we have had interns in fields including marketing, finance, politics, social welfare, public policy, journalism, communications, humanities, and visual, fine and graphic arts.

  • This program includes an eight-day trip to an aboriginal community in Northwest Australia.

  • Coursework will be taken with other program participants, providing a learning community framework and an American perspective on your experience.

  • Throughout your internship, a faculty sponsor and workplace supervisor will be available to ensure that you are meeting your professional and academic objectives and putting what you have learned into context.

I am in debt to Arcadia's Australian staff for organizing this opportunity. As with many things meaningful, I believe that the extent to which this experience has affected me will only become more apparent in the years that follow. ”
