Third Year + Fourth Year
The RMIT Interior Design program is supporting student engagement with industry, by extending an invitation to 3rd and 4th year students to participate in our Placement Program in 2019. Placements enable students to access professional experience within local and international design practices as part of their studies.
RMIT organised placements are a valuable and sought-after learning experience that allow you to apply your academic learning within an external workplace. The experience can enable you to grow your understanding and experience of different workplace cultures.
Overall a placement should help you develop confidence in transitioning from an academic to professional environment through the process of building your folio, interviewing and helping you understand the different demands of professional design practice.
Generally, you will spend 1- 2 days a week in the office over a semester. It might also be undertaken over an intensive period, such as during a semester break or combination of both. However, the placements are structured with as much flexibility as practical, so that practices and students can tailor the role, hours and activities to suit the capacity and projects currently within the office. This will be agreed prior to commencement of the internship.
An internship should equate to 110 hours and 12 credit points.
Placement applications are now open to third and fourth year RMIT Interior Design students. Students wishing to apply are asked to submit an Expression of Interest to Ying-Lan Dann and Anthony Fryatt. The structure and content of your submission will be used to help the program match you to a suitable practice.
Your Expression of Interest should include:
· Cover letter, outlining your key strengths, capabilities and design approach (1 page)
· Curriculum vitae (1-2 pages)
· Folio of work: approximately a 10 page folio (PDF) that showcases a brief range of your design work including highlights, process and brief written commentary.
