Since 1988, the Museum of Applied Arts and Science has provided instruction and inspiration to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as others seeking self-enrichment. Former interns have achieved success in professional positions in the cultural, arts and museum sectors. The relationship between the institution and the student is mutually beneficial; with guidance from museum professionals, interns gain practical experience by working on projects and programs while the Museum benefits from the contribution of the Interns.
The supervisor relationship between interns and staff is promoted and recognized as integral to professional growth. Like the museum sector itself, the scope of the Internship program has grown to include participants from all academic backgrounds, to this end we encourage networking through a range of calendar events and an annual alumni event.
Students wishing to apply for one of our internships must meet ALL of the following criteria:
o You must be currently enrolled in a relevant course at a recognised Australian tertiary educational institution.
o Your educational institution must endorse the internship and provide insurance cover.
In 2021 the Museum will offer two internship intakes.
Session 1 – July - September
Session 2 – October - December
