Doing an internship in Australia

Why Australia?

Australia is one of those countries most people want to visit at least once in their lifetime. But why is it that way? What makes it so desirable to visit a sparsely populated continent, mostly consisting out of environments quite hostile to life, not to mention all the dangerous creatures from scorpions to sharks?

It may be the beauties of its nature, like the Great Barrier Reef or Ayers Rock and it may also be its unique fauna. On Australia you can encounter animals, which can’t be seen on other continents except for zoos. For example, only here you can see Kangaroos and Koalas in their natural habitat.

 

A western culture in a non-western climate

For many it is because of its culture. Australia offers a unique western lifestyle in a non-western climate. Here you can sit in a pub at the shores of the Pacific, enjoying a Pale Ale, while watching a Rugby game on TV. Australians have maintained most of their European customs while adding some unique Australian folkways to it. It also seems like Australians never got really used to the South-Pacific conditions, which is so different from that of most of their ancestors in Europe. This is why many of them won’t ever go out without using sun blockers, or wearing hats or sunglasses, or all together.

And of course the language is a big plus when it comes to Australia. As an English speaking country, it offers its visitors an easy entrance into its culture and society without having to bother with having to learn yet another, possibly difficult, language.

 

One of the leading nations in technology and science

Besides all that Australia is also one of the leading nations in technology and science, thus being an excellent place for doing internships. Be it working at a veterinarian hospital in one of Australia’s big cities or as a programming assistant in a thriving IT-Startup. We even offer such original placements as working in aviation management. Australia is definitely a place where young interns can boost their skills and thus lay the foundation for their future careers.

Xubo’s professional internship program in Australia comes with a a variable duration from as short as 6 weeks to as long as 22 weeks. We make sure, that you get the right accommodation to get the most out of there stay in Down Under. Accommodations are usually located in the center of the city and near to public transport routes to give you the opportunity to explore the cities on your own.

To sum it all up. We seem to get the idea why so many people want to go to Australia to do an internship: it is a win-win situation. You get to enjoy a unique flora and fauna, a unique but still easily accessible culture and work within one of the world’s most modern societies.
