ACPIR offers Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities (placements / internships / work experience) to undergraduate and postgraduate students to work with projects in various fields, such as:
- Biomedical Science
- Agribusiness and agritourism
- Environmental Health
- Marine and coastal ecology
- Climate change adaptation
- Social Sciences - peoples and cultures
- International / community development
Further, all our projects have aspects of stakeholder engagement, monitoring and evaluation, data processing and analysis, literature review, administration – no matter what discipline area. The common denominator is a focus on the Pacific Islands.
We tailor a placement to fit the student’s interests, with a view to engender and nurture in the students an interest in and understanding of the research world and, of course, the Pacific Islands.
