Internships and Work Experience provide students with invaluable skills in their selected fields, which may also leading directly to employment opportunities. We are keen to ensure our program is fruitful, equitable and of enduring benefit to the students, employers and the reputation of Bond University.
Bond University’s HSS Faculty combines liberal arts with vocationally-oriented studies for strong graduate outcomes and a lifetime of achievement. In all disciplines, theory is complemented by job placements, work experience and internships under the guidance of internationally-trained professors, all of whom are actively involved in cutting edge research.
Work placements are designed to provide students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, a chance to further their skills in their chosen discipline.
Internships allow students to attend the workplace of an industry employer where they will be given guidance and supervision as they gain practical experience. While tasks and responsibilities vary, students may find themselves undertaking tasks such as market research, project management, client liaison, promotion and event management to name a few.
An internship is for credit and counted as a subject of a student’s degree; therefore the student is required to secure an academic supervisor for the internship, complete a minimum number of hours in the workplace and submit assessment items at the end of the placement.
Work experience is not for credit and is taken in the student’s own time. There is no assessment associated with the placement and no minimum amount of hours required for the placement.
Our internship and work experience programs form part of a broader strategy where every Faculty focuses on real life scenarios, where technical skills and theoretical knowledge are challenged by the workplace complexities of strategic, economic, competitive, human and political issues.
Bond interns serve as a valuable resource for employers in managing their changing human resource needs and with no commitment, employers can assess interns as future potential employees. Our students have been given a unique educational experience and the University prides itself on producing graduates who are work place ready and who can be assigned special projects or research tasks leaving workplace supervisors to concentrate on core business activities. Internships and work experience are completed on an unpaid basis.
