Are you interested in working with Crawford School of Public Policy students?
Crawford School students are highly qualified and motivated people at the post-graduate level. Students participating in an internship will be seeking opportunities that provide them with the chance to put their theory and learning into practice and extend themselves in a professional environment.

Hosting a student

As a host, you will receive access to postgraduate students from Australia’s leading public policy school. Interns can assist your organisation with a range of research and policy-related activities. Internships are customised to your needs.

Our students will benefit from your expertise and gain valuable experience working with your organisation.

We are interested in working with partners across the public and private sectors, including federal and state government agencies, local and international NGOs, advocacy groups, peak bodies and private firms.
