University students and graduates

The public sector is a great place to explore your career aspirations and apply your newly acquired skills and knowledge. Depending on your study journey the following options may be of interest.


The Public Sector Internship Program provides an opportunity for eligible students from all universities in Western Australia to apply to undertake a workplace project within a public sector agency.

Through the Internship board, public sector agencies advertise their projects and eligible university students can apply.

Students must seek approval from their university unit coordinator before considering an internship. 

The university unit coordinator receives an automated email once a student has submitted their application requesting approval of the application. Approval must be given before the agency is able to consider the application.

The program guidelines provide detailed information for students and universities.

Agency graduate programs

Many agencies run graduate programs, which offer structured training and development. The timing and structure of graduate opportunities differs between agencies and can be advertised at any time during the year — click here for further details on current agency graduate programs.
