The placement program application is a three-part process and consists of the following steps:
If you have been impacted by the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, and think you’ll be unable to complete the application by the deadline, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So that we can determine whether you're eligible for the program, you first need to apply for departmental permission for the placement unit. Log in to Sydney Student and add the unit of study relevant to your placement:
|Unit of study||Unit description|
|BUSS2100/BUSS6500 - Business Placement A (Internship)/Industry Placement||Local Professional Placement in Sydney|
When you select the unit, you'll be prompted to apply for departmental permission so that we can assess whether you have room in your degree.
We will email you with the outcome of your request. If your departmental permission application is approved, this does not mean you have been accepted into the program, but that you are eligible to go onto the next step of the application (see step 2 below).
If your application is declined, you are not eligible to participate in the placement program based on your current enrolment status and the associated degree progression information available in Sydney Student (eg. degree, major/s, elective credit space in your degree).
If you have only completed 24 credit points in your enrolled degree, you may not be able to select the unit in Sydney Student, due to the program eligibility requirements. Provided you will have completed 48 credit points of business units before the program commences, you can still apply. In this case, apply via Sonia Online and state this in your application form, and also email us at email@example.com to let us know.
As part of your application you will be asked to include:
Your documents need to be submitted as a single Microsoft Word document, no larger than 12MB.
Once applications have closed, we will email your University student email account with instructions to complete your industry placement program online interview.
Online interviews are conducted using Sonru and you will have approximately two days to complete it.
Before attempting the interview, please keep in mind the following.
If you'd like to practice online interviews, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Industry Placement Program application is not complete until you have completed step 1 and 2. Late applications will not be accepted.
