Griffith University Art Museum is proud to offer a WIL Internship Program to Griffith University students and alumni. Our interns work closely with staff members to undertake daily museum operations across our South Bank and Nathan locations. These tasks might include curatorial research, public programming, exhibition install, artwork handling, condition reporting and collection management activities.

The Internship is best suited to students at the early stage of their career looking for a broad overview of museum work. From 2020 we will be offering more flexible internship options. Applications to the program will now be accepted on a rolling basis, meaning you can apply at any time throughout the year. If you are a current Griffith University student, you can complete the Internship in exchange for course credit - both 10 credit point and 20 credit point WIL options are available to undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The Art Museum accepts up to six applicants in a calendar year. Each internship is run as a 12 day volunteer program alongside the University's trimester timetable.

These are the steps involved in the application process:

  1. Complete the online application form below.
  2. Art Museum staff willy notify you of the outcome of your application in due course.
  3. If your application is progressed, you will be asked to make an appointment at one of our locations for a face-to-face interview with a staff member.
  4. Successful applicants will be offered a placement in the Internship Program and staff will organise enrolment into your selected WIL course if applicable.

Please note: Applications are open on a rolling basis for the current calendar year. Please apply at least four weeks in advance of the first teaching week in your preferred trimester.
