The Australia-Korea Internship Program is offering eight postgraduate or senior undergraduate students the opportunity to live and work in Korea for seven weeks from 5 January next year.

Students studying business, commerce or IT are eligible to apply. During their stay in Korea, the interns will work in Korean multi-national companies, take part in cultural activities and receive language tuition at weekly workshops.

Program coordinator June Kim, from the University of Sydney's International Portfolio, said: "Students get to learn about Korean culture and society and get a great insight into Korean business life."

The program is funded by the Australia-Korea Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and has been managed by the University of Sydney's International Leaders Program since 2004. See the AKIP brochure for more information.
