Work Integrated Learning

What is Work Integrated Learning

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is described in any number of ways across the university sector in Australia, but at its core WIL is any learning activity or program that provides students with industry experience. Examples of industry experience can include:

  • Guest lectures by industry representatives
  • Industry suggested projects completed on-campus
  • Industry or community volunteering
  • Short term placements
  • Industry embedded placements or internships

WIL in the School of Science

The School of Science provides all of these WIL opportunities in one form or another, with industry embedded WIL placements considered the ultimate destination for students seeking to engage with industry prior to graduation. Students who meet eligibility requirements can spend their final semester in a full time industry embedded placement with an industry partner, be it a commercial, government or not-for-profit agency.

Eligibility requirements vary from course to course, but at a minimum students will need a course Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 65% or higher as they head into their final year of study, be in a course which has WIL in its structure and have been through an interview process before being granted entry into the WIL program.  To view the requirements for a WIL placement,  please click on one of the following WIL compatible courses or email an enquiry to the appropriate WIL coordinator.
