Industry Experience

School of Creative Industries

Through internships and organisation-based projects, students are prepared for the workforce by applying their skills and knowledge in a real world context. Collaboration between the university and industry is an integral part of ensuring our graduates are work ready and have strong, globally relevant skills. The university also understands that professionals within host organisations play a vital role in contributing to the communication and creative industries in Australia and around the world.

The benefits to host organisations are immense; student projects or interns can contribute to the work place by providing fresh ideas, innovation and assistance during busy periods. Further benefits and the obligations of host organisations can be found here.

Experiential, practical learning is a key action set of UniSA's Crossing the Horizon Strategic Action plan. The university aims to ensure that all students acquire measurable, transferrable skills for employment and life.

Students available for internships or projects come from a range of disciplines in the School of Creative Industries such as

  • Communication and Media
  • Journalism and Professional Writing
  • Media Arts (Media Production, Film and Television, Animation and Web Design)
  • Sociology
