The time commitment is 200 hours which equates to two full working days per week or the equivalent. The internship is offered to third year Bachelor of Sustainable Food Systems students. The main focus of the internship is for students to further enhance their skills and knowledge developed throughout their Degree and to gain practical experience in the food industry. Students focus on personal and professional development, understanding the interplay at team, organisation and industry levels, and development of scientific skills and knowledge. Students will apply learnings to food-industry relevant issues ensuring a safe, sustainable food supply.

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
