Is it fashion marketing or hospitality? Graphic design or event planning? Whatever it may be, after an internship abroad in Sydney, employers will know that you have what it takes. An internship in Sydney is an experience unlike any other. As Australia's financial and economic center, the metropolis is home to a vibrant, diverse populace, eager to innovate and compete in what has become an increasingly globalized marketplace. An internship here allows for second-to-none experience in a culture that is as unique and diverse as any place on the planet.



Complete a full-time internship abroad and lay the groundwork for your future career! Work in a global environment and learn about your field from a cross-cultural perspective.  

ISEP and its partners work with you to find an internship placement that matches your career aspirations, educational background and location preferences. During the application process, you will conduct a brief phone call with an ISEP Advisor to learn about your goals for interning abroad. If accepted, you will be guaranteed an internship in your desired career field.  

In the months leading up to the term abroad, you will be matched with potential employers and interview with them directly to learn more about each other. If everything goes well, the internship is finalized. You will know your internship placement and role before you depart to your host country.

I really enjoyed my job and gained a lot of real world experience in the marketing field. I highly recommend this program for a truly life changing experience, plus it's a good resume booster.”
