Interns will also gain an introduction to the public sector. Enrolment in this unit requires the specific approval of the Unit Coordinator before enrolling. For this reason students are unable to enrol online. Instead, students must print a hard copy of their enrolment statement which must be signed by the Unit Coordinator.
