We strongly encourage all our science students to explore professional experience opportunities, and when possible take on an internship, while studying at UTS.
A science internship can be either a research project in one of the many research labs on campus, or engage in lab-based or field-based work with an external organisation such as medical firms, hospitals or national parks.
Enrol in a research internship on campus
In order to enrol in a UTS Science Internship subject, you must have a free elective in your Study Plan. Internships can be 6p, 12p or 18p credits.
Most research groups in the School of Life Sciences have a range of projects suitable for interns. If you are interested:
- find a research group in your area of interest
- contact the group leader
- check out the details of the enrolment process at UTS CareerHub.
