Cultural Exchange is the exchange of differing ideas, beliefs, rituals, customs and traditions between people with different backgrounds. Australian Internships aims to promote this exchange in order to foster mutual understanding and tolerance of other cultures throughout the internship programs.

Within our programs, international visitors can gain a better understanding of Australian labour procedures and way of life. It’s not only the interns that learn from this exchange but the surrounding community as well. Working or living alongside interns from other countries can provide a better appreciation for other cultures and can also challenge established perceptions.

  • Hospitality Internship (Culinary, Food & Beverage, Front Office)
  • Professional Internship (Business, Engineering, Marketing, Human Resources, Graphic Design, Journalism, Events, Sport, Politics and many more)

What our students say

I decided to do my internship in Australia to gain experience working abroad, living on  own and trying to adapt to another culture. Having an internship abroad is like working. I got to work full time, which helped me earn, save and and pay for my own bills. I’ve learned to be independent. I had to work hard to pay for my bills. I had to do my own laundry, cook my own food and buy groceries. I learned to stand on my own feet, without my parents/family by my side. I became globally competitive, which gives me an edge in my chosen field.

My internship is at Hyatt Hotel Canberra in the Food and Beverage Department. At first it’s hard. I really had a hard time adjusting with the weather. Since Canberra is one of the coldest place here in Australia. I could hardly sleep because it was too cold. At work, it was easy for me to adjust since I got used to working with different nationalities. Everyone was adjusting with different cultures but it wasn’t hard as I thought because they’re kind and approachable. You will find new friends that will make you enjoy your stay.

I definitely recommend students and young professionals to do an internship abroad. Always look for a better opportunity. My advice would be, don’t be scared to try something new, don’t be scared to go out and live alone. Always grab the opportunity given to you. It’s you who make your future. Always dream big and high.
