Good things happen when you’re outside your comfort zone, away from the classroom and beyond the text books. That’s why real-world, practical experience is embedded into all of our degrees. We see this as the best way to learn your craft and test out the things you learn.

Our Work Integrated Learning programs have forged strong partnerships with leading local and global organisations and challenge and inspire students to acquire practical workplace skills. This could mean participating in a clinical or professional work placement, practicum, internship or project-based learning.

Take a look at some of the unique Work Integrated Learning opportunities our students have experienced.
