    Students are required to undertake an internship placement of 75 hours under the supervision of a professional practitioner in an appropriate workplace in the community where they will be exposed to and involved in the processes of planning and implementing management activities (please note that under special arrangements it may also be possible to undertake this internship in an overseas location). Each student is required to analyse the organisation and management practices by preparing a research report and maintaining a reflective journal throughout his/her placement.

    Each student will also prepare a 5 minute electronic virtual presentation which could be used to share his/her observations and experiences with others. There are also three assessable workshop sessions held on campus where students will be exposed to services of the UC Careers office, professional practices and relevant theories. It is expected students would have completed the module, Thinking Like a Professional, in the compulsory BGL foundation Level 1 unit Problem Analysis and Statistics (PAS) or an equivalent where students have articulated into UC or are from another UC faculty.

    Learning Outcomes

    On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Understand the relationships between event and tourism theories and actual professional practice through self-directed learning;

    2. Analyse actual related event and tourism practices and identify how event and tourism could be improved;

    3. Working individually and in groups communicate their experience both orally and in written form, with confidence and clarity; and

    4. Demonstrate entrepreneurial skills including creativity, initiative, critical thinking, adaptability, leadership, and resourcefulness.

    Contact Hours

    This Event and Tourism Internship is a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) unit generally undertaken off campus for 75 hours. This unit involves a work placement in a private or public institution and hence requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. Students will also be invited to attend on campus WIL learning activities (such as information sessions, workshops and practical placements).
