Work Integrated Learning

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.

Can I apply?

WIL programs are available to domestic and international students enrolled in most undergraduate, postgraduate or research higher degrees.

Whether you are studying engineering or creative arts, more than 90 per cent of our undergraduate degrees are now offering an opportunity to undertake a WIL activity.

Compulsory Placement

A number of degrees require students to complete compulsory clinical, industrial or professional placement. You should always check your degree details to see whether a placement is applicable and whether there are any requirements you need to know about.

Further information is also available under the following faculties:

Will I be paid?

Most WIL programs are unpaid. If you are looking for paid work you can contact the Careers Service for help or apply for an Industry Scholarship.
