The PACE (Professional and Community Engagement) Internship programme is a unique programme at UC where students:

  • Intern with a local business or organisation
  • Are supported by UC academic staff to reflect on their experience, and
  • Gain academic credit (15 or 30 points towards your degree, offered at various levels of study).

Students work on varied and interesting projects for local businesses, community organisations, local government through to large corporations.

The PACE Internships Office works closely with students to understand their areas of interest, skills, industries or organisations they would like to be involved in, and works towards creating an internship tailored to those aims.  This is a non-exhaustive list of some of recent internships:

  • Event management
  • Social media platform creation
  • GIS Mapping
  • Policy analysis
  • Media strategy development
  • Marketing
  • Research
  • Community development
  • Urban Planning
