This subject will enable students to apply and extend the knowledge acquired through the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Production). It offers students the opportunity to gain real life professional experience and extend their own professional network.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 120 hours of industry internship with an approved external partner/s (organisation or individual practitioner) related to their specialisation within the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Production). The internship should draw on specialisation-based skills learnt in their course. Students will work across a range of tasks relevant to the external partner's objectives in discussion with the host organisation or individual practitioner and the Subject Coordinator.
Students are responsible for identifying a suitable internship prior to the start of the year with support from the Subject Coordinator or delegated supervisor. All placements must be approved by the Subject Coordinator.
Academic support and supervision are provided by the Subject Coordinator or delegated supervisor. Prior to semester commencing, the Subject Coordinator will provide support with industry relations, legal agreements, and communications. Work supervision during the placement is provided by an identified manager/mentor in the host organisation or by the individual practitioner.
The internship is complemented by sessions designed to develop employability skills and attributes, linking them to industry expectations.
On completion of the subject, students will have enhanced communication and interpersonal skills, and an understanding of career planning and professional development.
