Known as one of the most beautiful and livable cities, Sydney is the financial and economic hub of Australia. It's also home to four of Australia's top 10 companies: Caltex Australia, the Commonwealth Bank, Westpac, and Woolworths.
Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your résumé and make you more attractive to employers in today's competitive job market. IES Abroad's unpaid, academic internships place Sydney students at local companies, while also showing students the sights and sounds of Australia.
Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interview skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment. You'll be guaranteed a placement at a local business or organization, where you'll work for at least 32 hours a week. You will also enroll in a required 1- or 6-credit academic internship seminar with other IES Abroad interns, where you'll learn about a variety of local business settings and opportunities.
With IES Abroad's dedicated staff and international connections, you can be sure that you'll find an internship that meets your goals. You'll learn, and learn to stand out.

There's so much to see and do, bring your camera along so you don't miss a thing!
