Office for the Public Sector


University internships

Our sector partners with universities to enable undergraduate and postgraduate students to undertake internships within public sector agencies.

The internship program provides agencies with talented professionals for a range of purposes, from whole of sector projects to initiatives within discrete business units.

Interns do not receive remuneration during their internship and are not employees of the public sector. Placements can be on a fulltime or part-time basis.

The Department for Industry and Skills through the Knowledge Exchange Program coordinate the Internship Program and provide information and assistance to agency internship supervisors, human resource practitioners and university student coordinators.

For more information, please visit the Knowledge Exchange Program Website.
