Work Integrated Learning

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) partnerships provide our University the chance to engage directly with the organisations that hire our graduates and ensure our degrees are meeting industry standards.

Through WIL we endeavour to deliver innovative teaching and learning programs that guarantee our graduates are equipped with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in a competitive workforce.

How WIL works

To make sure our graduates are career-ready we ensure their education takes place both in and out of the classroom. To do this we help local, national and international businesses find the right students to participate in internships, work experience or practical placements.

In turn, our business partners help us shape our degrees so that we provide students with the latest industry knowledge.

A WIL program can be:

  • on campus or at your business location
  • in any of our degrees
  • paid or unpaid
  • hands-on or simulated

International WIL

At our university we don't just engage with local industries, we engage with partners across the globe. In doing so, we are establishing ourselves as a world leader in the delivery of work integrated learning experiences and prepare our graduates for success on the world stage.


Students should contact their Faculty or Program Convenor to find out about WIL in their degree.
