An internship in Sydney is guaranteed to be an experience unlike any other. Australia’s financial and economic center, this metropolis down under is home to a vibrant, diverse populace, eager to innovate and compete in what has become an increasingly globalized marketplace. An international internship here allows for second-to-none experience in a culture that is as unique and diverse as any place on the planet.
While indigenous people are believed to have inhabited the land that makes up modern Sydney as far back as 30,000 years ago, Sydney as we know it today is a relatively young city. In addition to a great tourism industry that caters to adventure and nature lovers, Sydney is also home to wonderful opportunities in the areas of business, real estate, arts/entertainment, banking, education, politics, and law. Furthermore, it is widely considered one of the most pleasant and livable cities in the entire world. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbor, and Luna Park, it’s easy to understand why so many fall in love with this harbour city by the sea.
The Global Education office has partnered with Global Experiences to provide Mason students an internship experience in Sydney, Australia. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a Sydney internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in business and economics, communications, marketing, accounting, IT, environmental science, tourism, global affairs, government, and graphic design.
Housing in Sydney is in a serviced apartment complex located close to central station. Students share a double room, with a person of the same gender, in a shared apartment with other students interning abroad. Each apartment is two-bedroom, two-bathroom and is fully furnished with kitchen and laundry facilities. Weekly cleaning service is included, and a gym and pool are located in the building. The residence is within distance to public transportation, cafes, and shops.
