Students are encouraged to complete internships when studying journalism at Monash.
You can self organise your internships, in consultation with your tutor. In third year you can also complete an extended internship as part of your degree. Monash University provides insurance coverage for students on an approved internship.
Each year students intern at regional and urban media outlets, including The Herald Sun and other News Corp publications, The Age, ABC news radio, SBS radio, and Fairfax community press. These internships are an excellent way to find out what it is like to be a working journalist, build up your portfolio and make contacts in the industry.
Monash also encourages undergraduate and masters students to apply for ACICIS, which is an internship based in Indonesia. Like the third year internship program, this international internship can be counted towards your degree.
