The best way to learn the practical skills required after graduation is to apply your theoretical knowledge in real-world environments. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) programs challenge and inspire our students to acquire these skills and earn credit for their degree by participating in any clinical or professional work placement, practicum, internship or project-based learning. Whether studying engineering or creative arts
more than 90 percent of our undergraduate degrees are now offering an opportunity to undertake a WIL activity.

As a backdrop to this year's awards, Matthew Glover, a student in the School of Creative Arts, has undertaken, as part of his WIL, a documentary photography project to document our students in the field.

Gallery opening hours

The Gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 10am - 5pm, Saturday 12pm - 4pm, or by appointment. For enquiries please phone +61 2 4921 5255.
