Industry Experience

School of Communication, International Studies and Languages

Through internships and organisation-based projects, students are prepared for the workforce by applying their skills and knowledge in a real world context. Collaboration between the university and industry is an integral part of ensuring our graduates are work ready and have strong, globally relevant skills. The university also understands that professionals within host organisations play a vital role in contributing to the communication and creative industries in Australia, Hong Kong, the Asia Pacific region and around the world.

The benefits to host organisations are immense; student projects or interns can contribute to the work place by providing fresh ideas, innovation and assistance during busy periods. Further benefits and the obligations of host organisations can be found here.

Experiential, practical learning is a key action set of UniSA's Crossing the Horizon Strategic Action plan. The university aims to ensure that all students acquire measurable, transferrable skills for employment and life.

In Australia, the students available for internships or projects come from a range of disciplines in the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages such as

  • Communication and Media
  • Journalism and Professional Writing
  • Media Arts (Media Production, Film and Television, Animation and Web Design)
  • Sociology

In Hong Kong, students are from the Bachelor of Communication and Media, which is being undertaken at our partner institution, the Hong Kong Baptist University.

This site is designed to provide advice and guidance for host organisations providing internship or projects for students with a range of skill sets which can contribute to organisational outcomes in a globally competitive environment. Please go to this page for more specific information about the availability and skills of Hong Kong students.

We welcome you to explore this site, register your interest or contact us in Adelaide or Hong Kong to discuss options further.

"I got to see and work on almost every aspect of the media machine behind the Tour, from accrediting media to helping journalists with their inquiries, to writing press releases and stage management at the start and finish lines."
