Building Vital Industry Contacts & Networks through Placements & Internships.

Entertainment Management Students

During the final two trimesters of the Entertainment Management degree, students undertake two internship units. The internship program provides students with an opportunity to make  connections and familiarise themselves with their industry, as well as taking the knowledge and skills they have gained during their study into the workplace.

The internship completes the student's practical training and opens up invaluable networking opportunities for possible employment within the industry. It provides insight into managerial and organisational issues, with involvement of the student in areas such as event management, project management, marketing and business plan development. Students are matched with an organisation where their skills can best be utilised as they are supported and mentored by industry professionals. 

Graduate Employment have included:

  • Disney Channel Australia
  • Kobalt Music Australia
  • Elefant Traks
  • The Gordon Frost Organisation
  • Nordoff - Robbins Music Therapy Australia
  • Source Music
  • Paramount Pictures

Acting & Theatre Making Students

Similarly, AIM Bachelor of Performance also offers students for Placement, providing practical training opportunities as performers, creative team members, and producers for the independent theatre scene.

Our core value is an understanding that the contemporary artist, whether onstage or off, is seeking to realise a great idea in theatrical time and space. Bachelor of Performance students are among the best on offer in a new generation of independent theatre professionals.

All degree students are required to undertake an Industry Placement to complete their degree. The Placement Program provides an opportunity for students to make industry connections and familiarise themselves with the performing arts community. In return, students offer the knowledge, skills and attitudes they have developed during their studies to a creative workplace
