Students may apply for SCIF2199 in any academic term, including summer term.
There are two pathways for applying for SCIF2199:

Before embarking on either pathway, ensure you meet the minimum eligibility requirements for SCIF2199:
- Completed 48 units of credit

You can request a progress check from the Science Student Centre if you’re unsure about requirement number 3.

It is also expected that a minimum of 105 hours is completed during the academic term dates in which you are enrolled in SCIF2199. If your work placement falls outside of term times, please contact email@example.com to discuss your situation.
Students must have their internship approved and enrolment finalised before their internship starts.
Students must also meet the standard UNSW enrolment deadlines.
Faculty Approved Work Placements
Some placement opportunities are sourced by the Faculty of Science and are pre-approved for certain majors or programs.
Once you are offered an internship, you need to complete the SCIF2199 Work Placement Agreement Form in order to be enrolled in SCIF2199. The Science Student Centre will manually enrol you into SCIF2199 once your approval has been confirmed.
