Qantas Winter School Internship Program

The Qantas Winter School Internship program provides students a valuable opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in the aviation industry with Qantas Airways.

Value and duration

This six-month, fully paid internship program provides students the opportunity to gain valuable skills and knowledge by contributing to real business projects within our large and complex organisation.

Throughout the internship, students will:

  • be assigned to a business project and play an integral part in the achievement of desired outcomes;
  • participate in business unit studies to enhance overall corporate knowledge; and
  • receive coaching and mentoring by senior business professionals who will expose them to a wide range of issues currently challenging the aviation and airline industry.

The 2015 Qantas Winter School Internship program will run from 20 July 2015 until 22 January 2016 with a break over the Christmas / New Year period.

Note: this year's program will be based in Sydney and as such, successful candidates from interstate will be required to make their own accommodation arrangements; however, flights will be provided by Qantas at the beginning and end of the program, and for the Christmas/New Year break.
