Intern With Us

2020 Internship Program closed due to COVID-19

We will not be seeking any further interns for 2020 because of the impact of COVID-19.

Semester 1 interns who had only just started with us when we closed the office will, hopefully, be able to complete their internships with us during Semester 2 if we have resumed normal operations by then.

Subject to the current situation being resolved, we will open for applications in November for Semester 1, 2021.
