Cultural immersion & community in Melbourne
The Australian Experience
When you’re living abroad in a new country, the community you surround yourself with is everything. Having both a support network as well as friends with whom to explore Australia is one of the main benefits to interning abroad rather than traveling alone. The Intern Group’s global community is frequently one of the most impactful elements of an intern’s time abroad. With over 150 nationalities represented, it is just as diverse as Melbourne itself! The friends and contacts you meet in Australia will last for a lifetime, and your shared experiences abroad often make them stronger than those you make back home. Of course, Melbourne is a notoriously welcoming city and is one of Australia’s top destinations for university students, making it easy to meet people.
In addition to an internship in your career field, our internships in Melbourne program provides an entire professional and social experience.
