While most of my law chums were completing clerkships and legal work experience during university breaks, I found this time to be the alibi needed to jump on a plane for some indulgent globetrotting. I hadn’t travelled everywhere, but it was on my list.

As a political scientist working on human rights in Europe, I am naturally interested in the area of Indigenous affairs and native title in Australia. For me, the question of how to deal with its Indigenous population is Australia’s most nagging social problem.

The Aurora Internship Program places a large number of enthusiastic anthropology, social science and legal interns in Native Title Representative Bodies (NTRBs) and many other organisations pertaining to Indigenous affairs more broadly.

One of the most inviting reasons to study an Arts degree is the extensive range of possible career options. For this to be a fruitful journey, however, a healthy dose of self-motivation and real world experience is needed.

During the fifth semester (year 3) of a degree in Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen, you are meant to go abroad. You can stay in Denmark and study or do work experience, but let’s be honest – most of us couldn’t wait to leave!

My interest in native title has been longstanding. I remember being intrigued when I learnt in High School Social Studies class that only since 1993 has Australian law formally recognised Indigenous peoples as being owners and custodians of the land.
