Public sector

You are encouraged to browse the range of government departments and agencies.

An effective way to gain a government placement is to identify, as specifically as possible, the department and even the unit you would like to work in. The Arts Practicum coordinator can then approach the appropriate personnel on your behalf.

An alternative way to gain a government placement is to undertake a Public Sector Internship, which is offered in Semester Two every year. Successful applicants for the internship may obtain credit for the experience as an Arts Practicum.

Public sector agencies that have hosted practicum students in the past include:
