A very important part of your time in Australia should be spent doing work experience, an internship, volunteer work or taking advantage of the Professional Year. This is a great way to learn about work ethics, earn some money, get to meet Australians and acquire new skills.
Have your résumé ready once you arrive in the country. Contact the internship and student employment office at your institution and let them know that you are interested in taking part of these programs. Please note that to undertake an internship or the Professional Year, there are specific conditions and visas available for students.
