To apply, students must have completed at least two years of university studies at the time of appointment (ie. October 2015).
In their applications, candidates are given the opportunity to express a preferred geographical location and an educational sector.
About 50 positions are offered to Australian nationals.
Candidates must be Australian citizens. Permanent residents are not eligible.
Candidates should be between 20 and 35 years of age at the time of taking up their positions (from 1 October 2015).
Candidates must be enrolled at university at the time of application. Candidates must have completed at least two years of university studies.
Candidates must have some knowledge of French in order to be able to communicate easily in everyday life.
