International visiting students traineeship program

australian outbackApplications may be submitted from September 2011, for commencement in 2012.

The traineeship program is available to senior undergraduate students or, in some instances, postgraduate students from overseas universities/institutes to undertake a research project in The Wark. The program is designed to assist students to develop skills relevant to their tertiary education, current occupation or field of study.

Subject to project availability, The Wark accepts up to 10 trainees at any one time. The preferred duration of the traineeships is a minimum of six months and a maximum of 12 months. Trainees are paid a subsistence allowance of AU$350 per week. Trainees work under the supervision of at least two academic supervisors. They may be required to provide written and verbal progress reports outlining the work undertaken and the results achieved. Trainees are expected to work between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday to Friday and will be entitled to 20 days recreation leave per annum (on a pro-rata basis).

To participate in this program, students must be in the final stages of an undergraduate degree, or are undertaking or have recently completed a Masters qualification, and have high achieving academic backgrounds that are specifically suited to the research project on which they will work.

Students should apply through the IAESTE program. We may also consider applications from students from institutions that have formal agreements with The Wark and/or formal agreements with UniSA.

Travel and Health Insurance
Trainees are responsible for the booking and cost of all travel arrangements, including visas. Trainees must ensure that they have adequate personal travel/health insurance cover for the duration of their visit.

Documentation Required from All Applicants
In the first instance, students should check our Research Sectors to ensure their study interests correspond with at least one of the research sectors in The Wark.

Students will then need to supply the following documents to be considered for entry into the traineeship program:
