CISaustralia has launched its Virtual Internships program and has several position openings available around the world.
Virtual Internships are perfect for students who want to gain professional experience in their chosen field, work with an intercultural team at an international company and who are looking for an affordable (and environmentally friendly!) program option.
Choose from 4, 6 or 8 weeks to intern remotely at a company based in one of four exciting destinations around the world.
This is a great opportunity to engage with other countries and have meaningful cross-cultural connections and professional workplace experiences. With modern technology, we have the ability to bridge cultures and people from all over the world – all from the comfort of our homes and without the costs associated with travel.
The four Virtual internships also provide a range of potential equity and access solutions by opening up a range of new opportunities for students who might not otherwise have been able to attend a professional overseas placement. Virtual Internships are available in the following locations:
- China and Hong Kong
- South Africa
For more information on the placements available please see: https://www.cisaustralia.com.au/programs/virtual-internships/
Benefits of a virtual internship:
- Gain professional, practical experience in a project-based placement in your chosen field.
- Build your resume with experience at an international company.
- Learn ways to do business in a different cultural setting.
- Participate in cultural information sessions.
Complete your virtual placement from anywhere, allowing for flexible hours and a lower cost option by saving on flights, visa fees, insurance and accommodation.
These internships include ongoing support and supervision, cultural sessions, engaging and challenging projects, and an opportunity to build international networks. CISaustralia is committed to finding each student a professional and customised virtual internship (unpaid) that matches their career ambitions, and that will help build their resume and achieve professional and academic goals (for academic credit). Applications are now open.
Students should first apply to UNSW. Deadline dates vary.
If you wish to transfer credit for the program, you must first seek approval from your faculty for credit transfer through Cross-Institutional Enrolment. For more information see - Applying for credit and funding for your overseas short course.
