Queensland University of Technology’s high school STEM internships invite high-achieving Year 12 students to apply for the opportunity to expand their skill sets beyond the classroom and explore future career ambitions with like-minded peers – all before university.
The rigorous program develops students’ technical, leadership and critical thinking skills through a suite of on-campus practical learning, professional development and external assessment.
The feature of the program is a week-long experience in our state-of-the-art science and engineering facilities where students work in small groups on a research project of choice based on the work of leading QUT STEM experts.
As an intern, students will be treated like real QUT undergraduate, enjoying student campus life, accessing facilities and online resources, and undertaking practical and written assessment to prepare them for university as a new generation STEM leader.
Dates: Internship week: Monday 8 April – Friday 12 April 2019 (school holidays)
Costs: The internship program is fully-funded and requires no cost to students. The program does not include accommodation or travel.
Eligibility requirements: The annual internship program accepts up to 40 Year 12 students. To be accepted into this program, applicants must meet a number of requirements.
Applications: Applications for the 2019 program will open in January via our mailing list.
