During the winter break of 2017, I completed a four week internship with the Northern Land Council (NLC) through the Aurora Internship Program. By way of background, the NLC is a statutory body that represents and consults with the Traditional Owners of Aboriginal land.

Are you an anthropology student who is fascinated by Aboriginal culture, past and present? Do you want to get “baptised” by the real-life working experience outside the lecture hall? Then you will choose SANTS as an internship opportunity via the Aurora Internship Program.

The Aurora Internship Program was an incredible opportunity which cemented my passion for social justice and opened my eyes to a potential career in Indigenous Law. For five weeks over the winter holidays I interned at Central Desert Native Title Services in Perth.

There are some times that life seems like a preconceived puzzle and the pieces obligingly fall into place without much guidance. My experience with Aurora has been almost postcard perfect, and I cannot believe my luck and good timing while on placement.

While completing my Law and International Development degrees I always wanted to do an Aurora internship and it was once I graduated that I found the time. I did my internship with Native Title Services Victoria (NTSV).

An Aurora internship is an excellent, pragmatic means to exploring and deepening one’s theoretical knowledge, through applied experience.  It is more than that however.
