Welcome to Sydney!
Develop your professional skills by interning at one of a wide variety of companies in the bustling city of Sydney. Expand your professional network and learn critical skills necessary for the increasingly globalized international job market. Participate in group excursions around Australia that teach you about the cultural and historic context of your experience.
Sydney, with its iconic Opera House and Harbor Bridge, is Australia’s cultural center. It’s also the largest city in Australia, the capital of New South Wales, and the nation’s financial and economic hub. The site of the first British colony “down under,” Sydney has grown into a cosmopolitan city that scores high marks for quality of life. In addition to its cultural opportunities, Sydney also has its fair share of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and live-music venues. For all its excitement, however, Sydney retains a laid-back quality. The city has a wealth of parks, gardens, and outdoor pools. A short train-ride inland will bring you to the tranquil Blue Mountains; the other way lie Sydney’s surfing beaches, Bondi, Manly, and Tamarama.
An IES internship develops your professional skills, your ability to communicate across cultures, and provides substantive work experience to jump-start your career in today’s competitive job market.
You’ll be guaranteed an unpaid internship placement at a local business or organization, where you’ll work up to 35 hours a week. We will work with you to find the closest placement match between your professional and personal goals with what’s available in Sydney.
