Sydney Summer Internship Program Courses

You will enroll in two courses for a total of six credits over six and a half weeks.

  • As part of your 3-credit internship course, you will work full time 3 days per week at your internship placement. Placements may not be confirmed until an on-site interview with the potential employer.
  • You will complete a range of assessments relevant to your work experience.
  • Upon completion, you must submit a resource folder or a portfolio of your work and present your findings to your workplace supervisor or faculty sponsor. More information about your academic project will be available during orientation.
  • Please review your courses with your academic or study abroad advisor to ensure they will transfer back to your home school and that you are following your home school's policies.
  • Please be flexible - we can't guarantee specific courses. If your participation in the program depends on a particular course, be sure to make a note in your online course form.
