Why you should apply
Here’s how Joel, Bachelor of Laws/Commerce student, found his recent internship experience:
Completing an internship with the Australian Consulate General in 2021 through Austcham Hong Kong has been the most valuable experience of my university degree so far.
The range of projects I was able to work on was incredibly diverse. I delivered a research paper on the legal implications of the Hong Kong National Security Law, was given complete freedom to propose the content and UX design of the soon-to-be-launched Department of Home Affairs webpage directed at attracting skilled migration to Australia from Hong Kong, and was sent to represent the Consulate at multiple presentations and conferences.
With so many partners in all industry sectors, Austcham provides you with practically endless opportunities to build the experience that best suits your interests and career goals.
