Taking an internship as part of your Master of Environment can add considerable value to your study, giving you real-world experience and allowing you to demonstrate skills to potential employers. You can take an Internship subject as part or all of your capstone requirement for your Master’s degree.

Internship subjects are unlike most other subjects at the University of Melbourne because the internship placement takes time to organise. We recommend that you discuss taking an internship with your course advisor during course planning and to make contact with the Internship Consultant in the relevant Faculty. There are several internship subjects offered, depending on your interest area.
