Internship Program

As a part of its Career Pathway Program, Australian University Sport (AUS) offers internship opportunities for undergraduate students at its head office in Brisbane and via its secondary office on the Gold Coast. Internship positions at AUS are both highly sought after and highly beneficial to undergraduate students seeking real life on the job training and development. We have numerous examples of people that have volunteered as an intern for AUS and have gone on to secure employment off the strength of their experience and references from AUS.

Internships are offered throughout the year in the areas of Media Marketing and Sponsorship, High Performance, Education and Training as well as Events and Sport Programs. Internships are usually one day a week over a set period of time. Working from either the Brisbane or Gold Coast office, interns can expect to work on key projects across AUS business areas.

There are currently no internships available at the present time. More internships with our Nationals event will be listed as we get close to the event.
