Work-integrated learning

Many students must complete a work placement as part of their course. This helps them gain valuable work experience and credit towards their degree.

Any work placement that is course-related and assessed by the University can be described as Work-Integrated Learning (WIL). Students from a diverse range of disciplines require placements that generally commence at the start of each semester.
