Museums Victoria welcomes applications from tertiary students for short, unpaid, work integrated learning placements, or internships, across a diverse range of departments at Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks and Immigration Museum.

Applications can only be considered if:

  • You are currently in the second or subsequent year of a tertiary course;
  • the placement is a compulsory requirement of your course, and
  • the placement is authorised by your educational institution, and they provide insurance cover for you whilst you are on placement.

At this time, students seeking voluntary placements, graduates, and other non-students are not eligible to apply for internships, but are welcome to apply for volunteer roles.

How to apply

It is very exciting that Museums Victoria have again opened our doors to the public, after closures in support of measures to contain COVID-19. Our current focus is to safely return our public visitors and staff across our sites in a sustainable 'covid safe' workspace. Ultimately this will include our volunteer workers and student interns, however at the moment we are not accepting unsolicited internship applicants.

Any available internship positions will be advertised through the WIL team at the various universities.
