At the University of Newcastle, we believe that learning can happen away from the classroom and beyond the textbooks. That’s why we created Connect 88 – Internship Program for International Students.
This program offers international students the opportunity to expand their learning through internships, work experience, and practical placements.
Connect 88 facilitates opportunities for international students to engage with businesses and make meaningful connections with industry, preparing you to be career-ready when you graduate. You will develop important key skills including interpersonal communication, time management, problem-solving, flexibility and leadership skills that are vital components in any career.
Whether it’s work experience for one day or one week or a year-long internship, professional placements are incredibly rewarding and will help you gain valuable skills that can be used once you graduate. You’ll be able to understand what industry expects of employees while creating something productive for a business or organisation.
