Step 2: Complete CAPA’s KU Sydney Internship application by Feb. 1st.  See the CAPA Application Instructions in the Required Readings section of your Jayhawks Abroad account for details. 

Please Note: All internship placements in Sydney are dependent on fluency in English in order for CAPA to be able to guarantee a placement for a student.  As part of the internship application process all non-US students who do not meet the requirements outlined below will need to participate in a SKYPE interview as part of the internship application process.  This interview will be conducted with a member of the CAPA Sydney Internship Staff member at least 70 days prior to the start of the program, based on CAPA’s knowledge of the student’s citizenship at that time. The CAPA Program Manager assigned to the program will arrange the interview at a time that will be suitable for both the student applicant and the CAPA Sydney staff.  The deadline for the SKYPE interviews noted above has been set to ensure that the student applicant will not incur any program cancellation penalties if it is determined that their English language proficiency level will make an internship prohibitive.  

All non-US citizens participating in an internship will be required to follow the above process, unless they meet the following requirements:

  • Citizen of country where English identified as official language (see attached list)
  • Permanent residents of the United States
  • Individuals who completed high school in the United States

Program Reviews:
Cameron Sawyer Case, Summer 2015 Participant
Having an internship was the element of the program that I found the most rewarding, especially working for a non-profit organization on top of that. I was able to put my skills, knowledge and work into a position while still enjoying my time in another country. I liked having an internship over taking classes abroad because it really forces you to have cultural experiences in the office and you learn so much more about the country you are visiting instead of taking a course. You don't get just textbook answers from your co-workers and they can even tell you great places to travel, places to eat and more (you can't learn that by taking a class!)

Teresa Hoa Dinh, Summer 2012 Participant
Living in a great city like Sydney where I experienced the culture on a daily basis. I really like being able to eat lunch with the Opera House in the background, making use of the public transportation, and living with great people who helped me enjoy my experience to the fullest.

Stephanie Marie Glassberg, Summer 2013 Participant
The most rewarding part of my experience was planning and running an event for my organization all on my own. My internship coordinator gave me the freedom to do work on my own as if I had a real job at her company. I learned had more valuable experiences at this internship then I have had at any other internship so far in my career.
