Source your own internship for a semester or over the summer or winter break.

Requirements

You need to be in the final year of your degree program, with space for an elective, and with a minimum overall GPA of 4.

To meet the requirements for a work-integrated learning course, your internship needs to provide:

  • practical skills and experience related to your field of study
  • 100 hours of experience with one organisation.

If you want to use your current place of work for work-integrated learning, you are required to complete a minimum of 100 hours at higher grade duties. This means the tasks and activities you perform are different to those performed in your normal day-to-day work activities.  You need to obtain persmission from your supervisor to complete these higher grade duties, as well as confirmation that you will be appropriately supported for the duration of the 100 placement hours.

What our students say

Ayushi KapoorThe WIL course marked a defining chapter in my career. From the process of reaching out to companies for a placement opportunity to learning on the job and meeting some brilliant people, the experience has been nothing short of extraordinary.  The course gave me the opportunity to apply my conceptual knowledge to the business world in a supportive learning environment. It also gave me the opportunity to network with industry leaders in my field.

I am very happy to have taken this course as it opened doors for me and helped me land a full-time graduate job with one of the top 100 graduate employers.
