The Parliamentary internship programme (POLS 428) provides a limited number of selected students with the opportunity of gaining insights into parliamentary processes, the roles and responsibilities of members of Parliament, the functions and activities of the research units, the conduct of select committees and the activities of parliamentary parties.  Students who are accepted into this programme will have the opportunity to learn about the parliamentary process by working at Parliament during their honours year.
