About the Program

Program Description

Join the workforce in Sydney, one of the largest business hubs in the Pacific Basin, to explore your career options and start building a successful future. The Internship in Sydney program allows you to make steady progress toward your degree while developing practical skills in fields like Finance, Visual & Digital Arts, Business, NGO/Non-Profits, Communication, Health & Social Services, Marketing, Public Relations, Tourism & Hospitality, and more. Add on the optional Discovery Week prior to the start of your internship program to experience “classic Australia” through meeting koalas and kangaroos and visiting famous tourist sites and beaches. Learn more about the benefits of a CEA internship.  

Program Structure

CEA’s summer internship program includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.  
The full-time internship includes a 32-hour course and 240 hours at your internship placement over 8 or 12 weeks. Engineering internship placements are available for 12 weeks only. The internship course is comprised of a weekly classroom-based seminar and career development portfolio project. Together, the class and internship placement are worth 6 credits. 
We strongly recommended that you apply for this program as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements. 
The placement process involves two video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Specialist and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your host site supervisor interview, CEA will identify a placement for you based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.  

Upon placement, you'll automatically be enrolled in your internship course.  

Where You'll Study

The  CEA Sydney Center – Extension courses are designed to increase your understanding of the history and culture of Australia. The University of New Haven oversees the entire approval process surrounding CEA Study Center – Extensions, including faculty and courses. After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Sydney Center – Extension, students will receive a UNH transcript.  

Where You'll Stay

When in  Sydney you can choose standard  CEA housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
