External opportunities: These internships are not automatically approved for course credit as we do not have a formal agreement with the host organisations. They are considered as self-sourced internships and if they meet the requirements for project content, learning outcomes, safety, etc they can be considered for credit.

If you negotiate a self-sourced internship, email science.internships@anu.edu.au to enquire about credit. Contact us as soon as possible so we can assess the internship requirements, and enrolment in the internship course (eg SCNC 3000) arranged for credit.
