Each rotation lasts six months and aligns with your academic discipline, career interests and future skills. This allows you to develop your skills, build your network and gain experience in diverse environments.

By the end of the program, you’ll have valuable knowledge about the nbn® network and business, and – most importantly – about yourself.
