An industry consulting project involves working in a team with other students completing a response to a project brief provided by the host organisation. Academic credit is provided for RBUS7999.


The project runs for the duration of semester. You will meet weekly to work with your project team.


You will not be located at the organisation, but you will conduct business meetings with industry partners regularly. You can be located on campus at St Lucia or participate online. If you work online it is expected you will use a video conferencing tool such as Zoom to work with your team and meet with your industry partner.

Project options

Project offerings are diverse but all are designed to boost your employability and apply your disciplinary knowledge in a practical setting. You will be able to tell us which projects you prefer when you apply and we will try our best to accommodate your preferences.


Projects are sourced by BEL Careers and Employability. We work with different partners each semester.  Past partners include Cancer Council Queensland, Netball Queensland, the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health, Girl Guides Queensland, Noosa Tourism and So Brave, an Australian charity for young women with breast cancer.

Approval process

Unlike other courses, you need to apply and be approved before you can enrol in a work-integrated learning course.  To be eligible, you must be in the final year of your degree program, with space for an elective, and a minimum GPA of 4.
