International Internships

Interested in travelling as part of your degree? See a different part of the world, gain valuable work experience AND earn university credit with a one-month internship in either Vietnam or Japan!

The Business Internship Program (BUS 391) has partnered with CRCC Asia to provide UOW students with the life-changing opportunity to complete an internship in Vietnam’s vibrant Ho Chi Minh City! Known as the country’s economic and cultural hub of the south, Ho Chi Minh City is an exciting mix of the old and the new, tradition and innovation. Students can also select an internship in Tokyo, Japan’s energetic capital city. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a global powerhouse of business and innovation. Whilst the Kansai region offers a rich tapestry of experiences, from Osaka's vibrant street food scene and historical landmarks to Kyoto's serene temples and shrines, and Kobe's friendly locals and charming port city atmosphere. Students have the unique opportunity to explore all three cities seamlessly thanks to the region's efficient transportation network.

  • Gain real-world experience relevant to the increasingly globalised workforce
  • Set yourself apart from other graduates

More about Forage 

"Over the past few months, I was scheduled to complete an internship with KPMG Wollongong, however, the current conditions in Sydney made that impossible.

Alternatively, I have had the opportunity to complete several Forage virtual internships, focusing on the accounting and financial sectors which have provided me insight into various daily activities conducted in daily business processes. "
