Internship Program

The Institute of Criminology’s Internship Program is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students of Sydney Law School.

This is a recently established program undertaken on a pro-bono basis. One internship position is currently offered in each semester of the academic year. Interns must be available to work one full (8 hour) day per week (or equivalent by agreement) for the duration of one semester (10 weeks). Students can also apply for admission to the program by intensive mode during winter and summer break.

The Internship Program will be of interest to those students seeking to gain experience in an organisation devoted to research and public policy in the area of criminal justice. Interns will be provided with the opportunity to participate in a broad range of Institute activities and to interact, both formally and informally, with Institute staff members.

The Institute’s Internship Program may be undertaken as credit towards the External Placement Program in Sydney Law School's undergraduate program. For further information about the External Placement Program see the Faculty of Law, Undergraduate Units of Study Descriptions.
