How will an intern benefit the employer?

An internship is a win-win opportunity for both employers and students. While employers are able to secure innovative, skilled students to assist with projects, students are able to gain a taste of their chosen career.

Students are allocated an academic supervisor and are covered by the university's insurances while they are on placement.

Undergraduate Internships - Unpaid

Undergraduate internships are usually offered to students in their final year of a Bachelor of Business degree.

Postgraduate Internships - Unpaid

Postgraduate Business Internships are offered through the Sydney Graduate School of Management (SGSM) at WSU.

The SGSM Business Internships are unpaid and run four times a year, with an intake each quarter.

  • Quarter 1: Mid to late January
  • Quarter 2: Early to mid April
  • Quarter 3: Late June to early July
  • Quarter 4: Mid to late September.
