MAAS Tertiary Internships

Since 1988, the Museum of Applied Arts and Science has provided instruction and inspiration to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students as well as others seeking self-enrichment. Former Interns have achieved success in professional positions in the cultural, arts and museum sectors. The relationship between the institution and the student is mutually beneficial; with guidance from museum professionals, Interns gain practical experience by working on projects and programs while the Museum benefits from their contribution.

We offer a limited number of unpaid internships at MAAS for current students and recent graduates during the academic year. These internships provide for the development of professional skills in a variety of fields and learning about museum practice. Please note applicants must be current students.

In addition to focused learning through projects in various areas, students join a community of interns, volunteers and staff. All MAAS interns have opportunities to attend gallery programs, presentations by staff, and behind-the-scenes visits.


Students wishing to apply for one of our internships must meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • You must be currently enrolled in a relevant course at a recognised Australian tertiary educational institution.
  • Your educational institution must provide endorsement for you to undertake the internship and provide insurance cover.
