Internships for International Students

What is the CET Internship program?

Gaining an internship placement in Australia can be a very difficult and frustrating experience due to high competition and finding the right placement at the right organisation. At CET we provide you with the right preparation and workplace readiness training so you will get the most out of your internship and be able to impress your future employer and colleagues.

There are several programs you can take, depending on your English level, experience and availability of internship vacancies. At completion of your internship, you may be eligible for a continued internship that is paid with a stipend allowance.

How do I apply?

The length of the program depends on your IELTS score or equivalent. You will need to have a valid test score.
