Take your degree global

Challenge yourself, impress potential employers, enhance your networks, expand your cultural horizons, discover amazing places and form lifelong memories. Participating in an overseas program as a part of your Griffith University degree is one of the best experiences you can have at university.

Global Mobility Business Internship

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.

Applications for Trimester 3, 2020 global internships are now closed. Applications for Trimester 3, 2021 will open early in the 2021 academic year.

Please note - The Global Internship 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.

Funding assistance

Australian Government New Colombo Plan funding assistance of up to $5,000 is available for eligible Australian undergraduate students.

Students may also be eligible for an OS-HELP Loan.

Immersing myself in another culture through a global internship with Griffith gave me a greater understanding of Chinese business practices and about myself, both of which will be extremely helpful in my career. Having that understanding from working within the culture will definitely help me network in the future.
