Are you interested in an internship at DSM? Please read here what our former interns write about their time at the DSM:
"An intern at DSM can look forward to a wonderful time. The students and teacher team made me feel from the very first day. I have had the opportunity to get a first-hand impression of life at a bilingual primary school and enjoyed the many opportunities to teach and actively contribute to the different lessons. The term went by too quickly. It was very hard for me to say good-bye. Thank you very much for a fantastic term & time."
"My 10-week internship at DSM was a wonderful experience, that I will always cherish.The school has a very positive environment where you are not just an intern but part of the whole school community. I had lots of flexibility and space to teach independently, actively shape everyday school life as well as contribute to school events. I can highly recommend an intership at DSM and life in Melbourne."
"I had a fantastic time during my internship at DSM. All interns felt well taken care of and enjoyed working in this open and friendly atmosphere. It was a special experience for me supporting the students, being part of their bilingual learning journey and to also develop myself as aspiring teacher. Time flies when you are having a great time."
"The internship at DSM offers me a great opportunity to get to know the daily routine of a bilingual primary school. You get so many opportunities to teach classes by yourself or to actively contribute to organising school trips or projects. The atmosphere at the school is very warm and welcoming, and it is a pleasure working with the teachers - you get the feeling you are an important part of the school life. And of course you really become fond of the children."
"My two-month internship at DSM greatly expanded my knowledge of bilingual teaching and learning. This was especially due to the friendly atmosphere at the school and the great support of my mentors. My internship exceeded all my expectations! I can definitely highly recommend an internship at DSM!"
