The U.S Mission in Australia offers Internships at the U.S Embassy Canberra and our Consulates in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Our placements are unpaid work arrangements providing valuable educational experience in various areas of work, including: Political, Economic, Public Affairs, Information Technology, Human Resources and more.

Placements are assigned as a requirement of an education or training course that you are currently studying at University. Please speak with your University Internship Coordinator for further information as we do not accept direct applications for Internships.

The U.S Mission works closely with University Internship Coordinators to provide information for advertising for interns in specific areas. To be considered for an internship, keep an eye out at your University for our advertisements on intake dates and eligibility requirements.
