MUSGEN 1300EX - Music Internship 1

External - Semester 1 - 2019

As a central part of this course students will have the opportunity to spend time as 'interns' working within specified areas of either the private or public sector in South Australia, while completing an agreed performance, pedagogical, creative or research based task. The timeframe for these internships will range from several weeks to a complete semester. Students will be allocated placements selected from among a range of offerings within the professional music world including but not restricted to: the State Opera of South Australia, Co-Opera, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, the Band of the South Australia Police, bands of the Australian armed forces, the Adelaide Festival, the Australian Music Examinations Board, Arts SA, and a range of educational institutions within the private and public sector. Final placement will depend upon the availability of a host organisation (selected from a list provided by the Conservatorium), the application of an internal quota, and the assessment of a formal application taking into consideration overall academic merit as well as relevant skills, knowledge and experience required for the specific internship. In order to complete the process of placement allocation and enrolment, students should first submit their application to the Conservatorium for a place in the Music Internship by 30th April. Successful applicants will be advised of their placement during first semester and then will be able to enrol in the course.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
