These additional documents may include, but are not limited to:

Study at the CEA CAPA Sydney Center, centrally located in a bustling Haymarket neighborhood, and take courses in a wide variety of subject areas that encourage you to explore this diverse and vibrant city through in-classroom study and out-of-classroom experiences.

When in Sydney you can choose standard housing. 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.

Program Structure

For your CEA CAPA Internship program, you will simultaneously intern at your host organization, and take our mandatory Global Internship Course. Your internship work schedule will be established once you arrive, and may vary depending on your career field and host organization. 

Internship Placement Duration and Hours:
You will intern at your host organization for 6-weeks and work 20-30 hours per week (120 - 180 hours total). You will likely intern during standard business hours Mondays-Fridays and your placement may include in-person, remote, and hybrid work depending on the needs of your host organization.

Global Internship Course:
You will take the Global Internship Course alongside your internship placement. This professional development course is designed to accompany your placement so you can make the most of your internship abroad. You will learn how to understand and articulate the value of your internship through the lens of NACE Career Readiness Competencies that employers crave, which will help you stand out to future employers and graduate schools. You will also engage in live cultural discussions that will enhance your global perspective and intercultural awareness between your program location and the U.S. The course comprises of reading, writing, and verbal assignments, including building an e-portfolio, completing mock interviews, developing your online professional presence, giving a final presentation, conducting industry field research work, and more. You can also take advantage of additional CEA CAPA mentoring and career preparation workshops to complement what you learn in the course.

Credit Options: 
You will receive academic credit for your internship abroad via the Global Internship Course and your performance at your internship placement. You can enroll in the course for 3 or 6 credits based on your unique needs and preferences. If you enroll in 3 credits, you will complete 20 hours per week at your internship placement. If you enroll in 6 credits you will complete 30 hours per week at your internship placement. In addition, for the 6-credit course you will complete a robust industry field research project. 

NACE-Certified Career Coaching & Internship Placement Process
Once you’ve submitted your application and required documents for your internship program, your career development adventure will begin! You will be assigned your very own NACE-Certified Career Development & Internship Specialist, who will work with you one-on-one throughout pre-departure to guide you through the steps and deadlines of our Internship Placement Process. Your Specialist will be your main point of contact for your internship prior to your departure. They will be happy to answer any questions you might have, and will also provide you with personalized career coaching, as needed, so you are set up for success for your internship abroad.

In addition to working with your Career Development & Internship Specialist, during the Internship Placement Process you will engage with your In-Country International Internship Coordinator in your location and your potential host site supervisor. Your International Internship Coordinator will draw from your application materials to source and match you with a personalized internship placement that best aligns with your unique experience, skills, career interests, and goals for your internship abroad. Please also note, your host site supervisor will retain the final decision on the finalization of your placement, so it’s important to approach your interview with your host site supervisor with maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization.
