Internship Report Task: Purpose

At the conclusion of your internship you must prepare a report describing and evaluating your internship program. This is due a maximum of four weeks (28 days) after completing your internship. The purpose of the report is to document your learning and demonstrate that you have reflected on your experience in terms of the outcomes of the program as well as your personal performance. The basis for much of the report will be the reflective journal that you are required to keep during the internship – see Assessment Task 2 for details.

Provide an honest account of your experience. It is expected that your report shows evidence that you have been observant and reflected on your work experience and have thus learnt from your internship (whether or not you satisfied your learning objectives). When writing about your experiences, you may write in first person.

Report Structure

The report should include the following elements:

A title page indicating your name, student number, subject name and number, the name and address of the host organisation, and the period of experience.
Table of contents
Introduction (300 words). This section should:

Explain the purpose and scope of the report,
Identify the workplace and your position/role during the internship,
State your reasons for selecting this position and how it fits your career plan.

Program Evaluation (1500 words). This section should:

State your learning, and other, objectives as defined in your proposal;
Explain how and to what extent you satisfied your objectives and identify your key learning outcomes relating to each objective. If your objectives changed during the course of your internship explain how and why. Also explain any unanticipated personal and professional outcomes from the experience; and
Discuss how the skills, principles and theories covered in your academic studies assisted you in the internship. Be as specific as you can and use academic references relating to theories and principles where appropriate.

Personal Reflection Summary (500 words). This section should provide a concise summary of key points to emerge from your reflective journal, focusing in particular on:

how you performed in the workplace, and how your level of performance and/or confidence in

relation to certain activities changed during the course of the internship. Ideally you should compare how you addressed/performed in one particular task near the beginning and at the end of the internship; and
how your attitudes, behaviour, knowledge and career aspirations have changed as a result of this experience. Explain how and why these changes have come about.

Conclusion (200 words). This should be a statement about the overall value of the experience from your perspective, indicating the key lessons that you have learnt and how you have personally and professionally developed.
References which have been cited in the body of the report.

Internship Report Appendices. Note that appendices need to be referred to in the body of the report. They should essentially represent some physical evidence of your achievements and activities during the placement. These could include reports, test results, emails and other correspondence, etc. However, you should ensure that you do not include any information that the host organisation would regard as confidential. Please note that the reflective journal and workplace supervisor’s evaluation are not to be included within the body of the report; rather they should just be referred to in the appendices.

Presentation Guidelines

The report must be typed (minimum font size 12, 1 1⁄2 spacing between lines). It must conform to requirements for reports specified in the UTS Business School Guide to Writing Assignments, except that parts of it may be written in first person and an executive summary is not required.

Report Length

Total recommended length: 2,500 words. The recommended word length of each section is indicated above.

Due Dates

The internship report must be submitted within four weeks (28 days) of the completion of the internship.

Students should refer to CareerHub for their internship report due date, which is calculated from their internship end date.

The internship report and reflective journal must be submitted at the same time through CareerHub.

The word requirement for the assignments are specifically stated in the guidelines of the assignment. The word count is from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion paragraph. FYI.


1- There should be a cited reference for each section of a paper as there are conclusion statements in each section (to meet the grading criteria) so the conclusion should be supported by a reference as the assignments are evidence-based research, clinical papers.

2- Word Count- The word count is done from the first word of the introductory paragraph to the last word of the conclusion. The word count must be within the minimum and maximum word limit stated in the assignment instructions. A 10% – point reduction will be made in the total points for the assignment.

Week 1 and 5 assignments should have SIX studies. Week 5 assignment is a compilation of sections from the week 1, 2 & 3 assignments.
