Program Description:



The Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs is a world-leading centre for research, education and policy analysis in the international, political, societal, diplomatic and strategic affairs of Asia and the Pacific. As part of its commitment to a globally engaged curriculum and the development of ready practitioners, Bell School facilitates internship opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate coursework students. Internships for credit are designed to enhance a student’s program of study, but also to make a relevant contribution to the host institution (relevant government departments, think tanks, media outlets, NGOs).

Bell School and Thales Australia are offering a part-time internship for an undergraduate student in Semester 1, 2018. Thales is a leading global defence company with a presence in 56 countries and is one of the Australian Defence Force’s most trusted partners. Thales Australia has expertise in cyber security solutions, as well as protected mobility vehicles, naval support services and integrated communications solutions.

If selected for this opportunity, you will enrol in the six unit course ASIA2110: Asia Pacific Affairs Internship and work one day per week for 12 weeks at Thales Australia in Deakin, Canberra. You will work with an ANU academic supervisor and a workplace supervisor at Thales Australia and contribute to Thales business objectives, including research and analysis of information related to national and international security issues, while completing a competency log of workplace skills and an individual research project.

Agreed workload and assessment will be designed no later than Week 1 of Semester, with the work placement commencing in Week 2 of Semester. 

Workload and assessment will include:
  • Weekly work tasks determined by Thales and an assessment of workplace performance;
  • Reflective writing assignments; and
  • An individual research project, including a research progress presentation and a 4,000-5,000 word research essay.
