Information for students

Global internships offer high-achieving students nearing completion of their degree the opportunity to increase employability by gaining practical exposure to a professional environment in an international setting.

As a work-integrated learning (WIL) strategy, global internships enable students to complete an industry-related project or series of tasks on a full-time, short-term (6-week) basis and are unpaid.

Please note - All in-country Global WIL opportunities will be reviewed prior to delivery in relation to travel advisories and student health and safety, and may not proceed if the University is not confident of both or cannot provide comprehensive insurance coverage. We recommend that students do not book travel until recruitment is finalised and the program is confirmed. We will endeavour to do this as far as possible in advance.

Information for industry

Interns are capable of assisting with projects and tasks across various
disciplines in business, including: accounting, finance and economics; employment
relations and human resources; entrepreneurship, information management, international  and Asian business, and supply chain management; government and international relations;  marketing; and tourism, sport and hotel management.

Student testimonial

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) Global Mobility Internship has provided me with the opportunity to explore cultural awareness within an international workplace setting.By doing so, I have been able to develop primary cross cultural communicative tactics, whilst learning how to better conform to international workplace ideologies.

This internship has positioned me strongly to attain workplace employment upon graduation, as I developed various skill sets pertinent to industry practice in my time with Allive Creative.

Additionally, I have been given the chance to employ certain frameworks learnt in a theoretical capacity into a practical context. I would highly recommend this internship to any student interested in working in global business environments. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I hope it provides the same experiences for future NCP mobility students.

Industry partner testimonial

Shannon Casey was an excellent intern and the Amartha Micro Fintech team was consistently impressed with the quality of her work.

Throughout the internship, Shannon displayed a high level of professionalism and motivation. She has a great attitude and completed all tasks in a timely and efficient manner. Shannon is a fast learner, keen to explore new things and quickly adapts to change. She was very helpful, asked questions to clarify her understanding and to meet expectations, and always went above and beyond to produce great outcomes. She also had the opportunity to present her outputs directly to the CEO of Amartha, Mr Andi Taufan Garuda Putra. He thanked her personally for the assistance she provided throughout her placement and hoped that the learning she gained during her internship at Amartha will be useful for her in the future. Based on our positive experience with Shannon, we are very interested to host a further Griffith intern in the future.

Thank you for the opportunity.
