IPOS welcomes student interns enrolled in either Masters or PhD programs from around the world. Please contact us at to find out what research opportunities are available.
Your internship should form part of your degree program, so we normally require a letter from your University or supervisor stating this. We are unable to provide stipends or travel support for this program, so please ensure you have arranged for support prior to contacting us. If these conditions are satisfied, the University will sponsor you for an Occupational Trainee visa (class 442), see the Australian Department of Immigration for details. Most interns come for a three month period, but stay for up to a year is possible.
This program is extremely popular so please enquire well in advance.
