Internships are an effective way to stand out in a competitive job market. Prospective employers are looking for graduates who can easily transition into the workplace, so the experience gained via internships is invaluable.
COMM2222 is a unique model that allows you to gain recognition for a self-sourced internship. Explore with no limits and engage in an experience that will amplify your knowledge.
In this course you are required to combine practical work experience with five academic workshops and formal assessment tasks throughout the term.
Internships need to fit into an academic term to be eligible for course credit so there’s just a few things to check before you submit an application for the course. A self-sourced internship is eligible if the position is relevant to your degree, and approved by the UNSW Business School.
Things your employer should know:
- This is an academic course and you will need to complete academic assignments and workshops on top of your practical work
- You are required to complete a minimum of 120 hours in placement during the term period
- You are required to have at least one 30-minute meeting a week with your supervisor
Your company must agree to abide by the UNSW Work Integrated Learning Core Terms here and they are required to approve your placement before you are enrolled in COMM2222.
Let your supervisor know they will receive an email from the CA team verifying the position, then a second email from the Business Connect platform where they need to sign in and complete the WIL Agreement to approve your placement.
If your employer has any questions about the process, they can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
