Seeking intern hosts and graduate employers

The University of Melbourne’s Master of Applied Psychology (MAP) program is designed to transform psychology graduates into research and insights specialists with a deep understanding of human behaviour.  The MAP program was developed by market and social researcher Associate Professor Cassie Hayward and Professor Nick Haslam with a keen eye to producing graduates with high level quantitative and qualitative skills ready to add value in agencies and in-house across all sectors.

Graduates from the program have been employed by agencies including Forethought, Roy Morgan, Kantar and Wallis as well as behaviour change specialists including The Behavioural Architects and the Behavioural Insights Team.

The program includes a 20-day unpaid internship, and the University is calling for expressions of interest from research and insights professionals who would like to host an intern, either in-office or remotely. We are open to organisations from outside Melbourne who are happy to contribute to interns’ travel and accommodation costs if in-office is preferred.

To help our students find great jobs, the University is also compiling a list of graduate employers in research / insights related areas. If you run a graduate program or are open to hiring entry level research / insights specialists, please contact us.
