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.

Semester 1, 2021.
