Work Experience

Applications for 2018 Work Experience placements have now closed.


Applications for 2019 placements will reopen in January 2019.

The Australian War Memorial offers a very limited number of work experience placements each year. Students or their Work Experience Coordinator should apply as early as possible by completing and emailing the application form (available to download from mid-late January 2019).

Please note, submitting an application does not guarantee a placement.


Applications will be acknowledged on receipt. If a placement can be offered, the student and their Work Experience Coordinator will be advised within 4 weeks.


Eligible students must be in Years 10, 11 or 12 and be participating in a school-sponsored work experience program.


Due to certain Memorial work area requirements, some placements may require the student to supply and wear protective clothing such as long pants or closed shoes.


Only those who can be offered a placement will receive further advice from the Memorial. To those not offered a placement, we extend our thanks for your interest in the Australian War Memorial.
