Internship in Australia

Incredibly friendly, with unique slang, something crazy and with a "She’ll - be - right -mentality" that is above all dimensions: is what you’ll find in a real Aussie! Similar to Crocodile Dundee or Steve Irwin. Although this may be an exaggerated stereotype - introduced to us here by the film industry - they are just another two great reasons why we love Australia so much. And why it is just so desirable for many high schoolers and seniors and why their tickets ‘Down Under’ cannot be booked fast enough!

Which city would you like to go to?

It’s not only in the major city of Sydney that you can realise your dream, but other cities like Melbourne, the second largest city after Sydney, offer a great alternative and the cosmopolitan and internationalism make it attractive to international visitors. Particularly in the areas of business, sales, manufacturing, IT and logistics chances are good to find a quality internship, as these areas dominate the industry. To escape the big cities, Perth boasting its beautiful beaches and the "Eternal Sunshine" is as an excellent internship destination. Brisbane is attractive for surfers and Adelaide a smaller more affordable city but still offers great attractions.

Not only cuddly

A cuddly koala, a bright kangaroo, a highly toxic funnel web spider, - not all of us want to run during our stay in Australia, but we could. As Australia has distinctive and dangerous flora and fauna both on land and in the water, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Even the sparsely populated and barren Outback in the heart of Australia is overwhelmed with an almost infinite length and barren landscape structures in cinnamon red. On the coasts, where the majority of the population has settled, life seems, however, to explode in all colors and provides the Australians with seemingly limitless freedom: the many surfers caused an entire city to be renamed as Surfers Paradise, the Mardi Gras Festival also officially waives any taboos when it comes to clothes and love.

The Working Holiday Visa Makes it Easy

Australia is next to Canada and New Zealand as one of the 3 most popular destinations for work and holiday travel. After meeting the requirements, the visa can easily be applied for online. However, as it is in New Zealand, this visa is a one time only visa. This visa is valid for 12 months and therefore should be used wisely. Share your work and travel with an internship.

Good planning is half, no, all the rent

Naturally planning for an internship abroad requires that you save up your precious motivation, but above all, also save up money. As far as Australia is concerned, an often missed out point is that, Sydney and Melbourne are among the top 20 most expensive cities in the world. So take care not to select the wrong city for your dream in Australia, to avoid a rude awakening. Those wanting to not spend quite so much money on day to day expenses might be better off looking into the smaller cities for an internship. You should also match your internship city with your personal interests. Are you the outdoors type and prefer to be on your own or do you fancy yourself in the big city? Australia is a very large country, very, and long distance take not only time to cover but also money.

Land Down Under

"Down Under" has the Great Barrier Reef, kangaroos, friendly people, Ayers Rock, and …many others but when we think of Australia what comes to mind is usually just the stereotypical facts about the country and the people. To score points with your host company, you should look a little deeper in the history and culture crate. You think you are informed enough already? Why are "Men at Work" important to the national identity and why is Australia often referred to as a criminal society - is it really that dangerous? We have you covered on all of what you should definitely know about Australia.
