8 Jenna Gibbons Austrade, Madrid “For my International Studies internship, I undertook a placement with the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) at the Australian Embassy in Madrid, Spain. Austrade is responsible for Australia’s trade and investment interests overseas, and has offices across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. My main project during this internship was to help with the Austrade presence at an international education trade fair held in Madrid that attracts over 100,000 visitors annually. I also assisted with other projects including an investment seminar held at the Embassy, market research, reports and meetings.”

9 Caitlin Caruana Australian High Commission, London “The aim of the internship was to get a ‘taste’ for all areas of the work that the High Commission does. I got to meet with each of the government departments that work out of the High Commission, attend a meeting of the Commonwealth Secretariat, spend a day on a press junket with Defence Minister Stephen Smith, write the High Commissioner’s ANZAC Day speech, sit in on meetings regarding the Egyptian and Libyan crises and the Julian Assange extradition case, and assist in the Commission’s updating of their emergency management plan in the wake of earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan.”
