UTS Law's creative, innovative and practical approach to learning whilst building strong industry links has led to the development of experiential local and international learning opportunities for our students.
What is an internship?
Internships offers you the opportunity to gain local or international experience and develop practical skills through work on a 'real-world' legal project. Internships may be hosted by public or commercial organisations who offer either paid or un-paid work experience. You gain academic credit by enrolling into specialist subjects.
Why are internships valuable?
UTS Law is committed to ensuring that graduates are equipped with future-focused capabilities and the skills needed to be engaged professionals with a global outlook. Internship subjects build on your studies and involve work of an appropriately demanding standard to model professional work or practice. They give you the opportunity to build upon your theoretical knowledge in an applied setting.
How can I enrol?
There are a range of internship subjects on offer at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level. Depending on the subject, you will either enrol directly into the subject of your choice or submit an application form prior to being granted permission to enrol.
Is funding is available?
Funding may be available to students undertaking international internships with a large number of NCP scholarships or through UTS Global Short Programs.
