Gain work experience with an industry partner for academic credit.

What is work-integrated learning (WIL)?

Work-integrated learning combines academic theory with meaningful workplace practice within the curriculum to help you develop your employability.

If you are in the final year of your coursework, Work Integrated Learning provides an opportunity to put theory into practice, develop your personal and professional skills, establish networks, and find out what it’s like to work in your area of study. It bridges the gap between your academic studies and your career.
