What we’ll deliver
Internship in Australia (IIA) is a training institution backed by a number of Australian organisations, universities and colleges to arrange practical work-placements (internships) for students and recent graduates (interns).
We offer organisations of all structures and sizes the opportunity to take on our interns in their operations. Our interns come from a range of study backgrounds and are keen to apply the expertise gained through their tertiary studies to practical situations in the workplace. Over the years, we have proudly established a large network of Australian and international host organisations and are always interested in growing our network.
