ANIP is the only university program that offers Commonwealth Parliamentary Internships to students from across Australia. Interns are based in the offices of MPs and Senators and engage with a range of activities that shape national policy making.

ANU students can also undertake ANIP internships with the ACT Legislative Assembly, Government agencies, Diplomatic Missions, NGOs and Think-tanks. Placements are for one, two or four days per week and the ANIP course includes workshops on policy research and professional skills.
