At Urbis, our goal is to shape the cities and communities of Australia for a better future. We achieve this by drawing together a network of the brightest minds, and in this case, the brightest students. 

Our National Student Internship Program runs annually from February to December, providing you with an extended period to immerse yourself in our organisation and projects.  
Designed to be flexible alongside your studies, our Internship Program allows you to gain practical experience while pursuing your educational goals. We engage students across our offices in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Singapore, providing diverse opportunities for growth.

Our students consistently highlight the Urbis culture as what sets us apart.

Our multi-disciplinary structure is unified by a culture of optimism, high care, high performance, and common purpose. We are a values-driven organisation with a focus on collaboration, spiritedness, authenticity, and decisiveness. At Urbis, we believe in bringing our whole selves to work, the value of working together and exploring new avenues, and injecting some fun into our daily activities. 

We believe strongly in building a diverse and inclusive team – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because diversity is the key to, innovation and quality of thought. In fact, it’s the key to our creativity and to our clients’ success.  

In addition to these foundational aspects, Urbis offers an array of perks. Our active social calendar ensures a vibrant work atmosphere. We provide a dynamic and agile working environment, ensuring you have the flexibility and resources to excel in your role. Our offices boast second-to-none locations and environments that foster collaboration.  

Our program has been the launch pad for many leaders in the business, some even ascending to Director-level positions. From day one, students are actively involved in multidisciplinary projects, collaborating with experts from various services and fields. By the end of the program, you will graduate with a distinct advantage, armed with first-rate industry experience and lifelong connections.

Student - Internships and Support

We are thrilled that you’re considering applying for our paid internship opportunities. Here’s how it works: 

1. Online Application 

To begin, visit our Careers site, find the role(s) that you would like to apply for and complete our online application. We’ll ask you some basic questions and request that you upload your resume, cover letter, and most recent academic transcript.

In your cover letter, we would like you to address the following criteria:

  • Please address the questions highlighted in the “How to apply” section of the advert.
  • If you are applying for more than 1 role, please ensure to cater your cover letter to each role and submit your preferences in the application form.

Additionally, If you’re applying for a Design role, please attach your portfolio or provide examples of your work. If the file size is too large to attach, we would suggest providing us a link to your work.

2. One-way Online Video 

You will then be invited to participate in a one-way online video interview. Rather than a traditional face-to-face interview, you’ll have the flexibility to complete the interview at your own pace and convenience.

Through this one-way video interview, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of your background, career goals, and what drives you.

3. Face-to-face Interview 

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to one of our offices for a face-to-face interview. You’ll have the chance to meet our talented and diverse staff, who are passionate about shaping cities and making a positive impact. You’ll get a glimpse of our vibrant office environment and witness firsthand the dynamic atmosphere that drives our work. 

4. Case Study 

Depending on the practice area you’re applying for, we may ask you to complete a case study. This exercise enables us to evaluate your skills and abilities in a real-world scenario. 

5. Offer 

If you’re successful, our People & Culture team will reach out to you with a phone call to formally offer you a position in our program. Congratulations! Your exciting journey with Urbis begins.  

To be considered for our student roles, the following criteria apply: 

  • You must be enrolled in a course relevant to the practice area you’re applying for 
  • You need to be undertaking your studies throughout the duration of the student internship program 
  • You should be available to work 2-4 days per week once the program begins 

Please note that applications must be submitted online via our careers site. Kindly refrain from emailing your application to the People & Culture team. 

While we receive a high volume of applications each year, we regretfully cannot provide individual feedback. However, we will notify you of the outcome of your application by the end of our recruitment process. We encourage you to consider reapplying for future program intakes as well.
