In Performing Arts Internships, 3rd year Dance, Theatre and Performance Studies and Music majors are allocated industry internships. This is an opportunity for the Majors to choose a potential career path or explore an alternative to education, immersing themselves in one facet of the performing arts industry.

Students interested in developing their performance technique, observing creative developments, supporting community-based performing arts organisations or administrators would be partnered with an appropriate organization such as Sydney Dance Company, Sydney Theatre Company, Bangarra, Force Majeure, Critical Path, Performance Space, Urban Theatre Projects, PACT, Performing Lines, Regional ArtsNSW, RealTime, Belvoir, Playwriting Australia, Carriageworks and the UNSW Creative Practice Lab (CPL). These internships are open to all Dance Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies and Music majors, including those who have elected the non-creative practice pathway in the Dance Studies major.

Students involved in internships will be assessed by both the host organisation and course convenors. They would need to meet the requirement of 90-100hrs per session for 6uoc points. These hours would have to be managed around other course requirements in your degree.

Upon enrolment, students must submit a CV including skills and experience, and a statement of personal learning and career goals for the internship. These will be used to place students with an appropriate organisation and the CV will be developed and assessed throughout the course through feedback from lecturers.

A minimum WAM of 70 in Dance Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies or Music streams is needed to be eligible for this course.
