If you are considering an Internship program, we are sure you’ll have some questions. From our experience of working with thousands of Internship students, we have compiled these Frequently Asked Questions. Our friendly team would also love to discuss your queries and help you to become another successful Readygrad graduate.

Can I choose the host company?

Using our expertise, having matched hundreds of students to the right internship placement to date, we will find the most suitable internship opportunity for you. You will be matched to a host company that best aligns with your training needs, level of relevant experience and professional goals.

Is the internship paid or unpaid?

The internship is unpaid. This is a vocational placement, so you won’t be considered an employee. The internship is a training program in the best classroom you can get – the real working environment. Our role is to ensure that your internship is equitable with the host company delivering meaningful learning outcomes and experience. Providing an excellent internship program involves a significant investment in resources and time by the host company.

How much does the internship program cost?

The total fee for the Professional Internship Program is $3,500 for Engineering, payable in 6 easy instalments of $583 each. All other disciplines cost $2,500, also payable in 6 easy instalments of $417 each.

The cost of the program covers:

  • Career coaching
  • Interview & resume preparation
  • Internship success toolkit
  • Guaranteed 12-week placement
  • A dedicated mentor to guide you
  • Insurance
  • Certification
  • Ongoing support
Is there an opportunity for employment at the end of my internship?

While our internships are guaranteed, we do not guarantee employment. However, 1 in 3 of our talented students are offered employment with their host company following their internship.

When can I apply? How often are the intake periods?

Applications for the Professional Internship Program can be submitted anytime, with intakes every fortnight throughout the year.

What happens if I find a job during my internship? Can I finish early?

You will still be liable for full course payment if you find a job during the internship program. To gain the full benefits of the Professional Internship Program, it is crucial that you focus on seeing the entire program through to completion, as it will provide you with the critical skills and experience employers want.

Am I able to contact my consultant during my internship?
