If your study area is not listed here, but you are interested in this destination, please let us know and we can confirm with the internship provider

Note for postgraduate students: Internships for postgraduate students can be more difficult to source due to the niche and specific nature of courses and study areas. Postgraduate students should enquire with the overseas internships advisor before applying for a program to check availability of the relevant academic unit in their course as well as the possibility to source an internship in their desired location.
