Australian National Internships Program

Parliament House Canberra

Experience the heart of Australian policy-making and politics through a research project with the Australian National Internships Program. ANIP internships are open to current undergraduate and postgraduate students from all academic disciplines.

ANIP is the only university program that offers Commonwealth Parliamentary Internships to students from across Australia. Interns are based in the offices of MPs and Senators and engage with a range of activities that shape national policy making.

ANU students can also undertake ANIP internships with the ACT Legislative Assembly, Government agencies, Diplomatic Missions, NGOs and Think-tanks. Placements are for one, two or four days per week and the ANIP course includes workshops on policy research and professional skills.

Applications for ANIP Internships for Semester 2 2024 are now closed. Applications for Semester 1, 2025 (for placements in February to May) will open in August 2024.
