Description: This 10CP free-choice elective course is available to all students who have completed a miniumum of 80CP of study. It provides an opportunity for students to develop a range of professional and personal skills while making a difference in their community through combining volunteering with academic learning through a community internship organised either by the University or the student may use a current volunteering activity for the 50-hour minimum volunteering component of the course. The activity may be related to the student's discipline studies, or could be an opportunity to explore working with an organisation outside of their normal discipline learning context.
Community Partners who have joined with the University to offer volunteering internships to students include organisations, schools, government departments and corporations engaged in not-for-profit community activities.
The community-based volunteering is aligned with a structured academic program of learning that provides insight into the student's role in the world and explores a range of issues that relate to improving a variety of community needs.
[Other University areas may use the Community Internship course as the academic structure for community-based domestic or international volunteering activities. In those circumstances, students will receive additional guidelines regarding how those activities fit with the Community Internship, including specific assessment requirements.]

"Community Internship was THE best thing I've done in my life! It broadened my social conscience, I saw how my actions make a real impact on a child's life, and it influenced my career. It opened my eyes to inclusive practice which is now a life-long commitment for my personal and professional life." Phillip Poulton, Bachelor of Music (Southbank)
