General Information

Overview

Undertaking an internship or work-integrated learning (WIL) provides you with experiences to advance your work readiness and opportunities to demonstrate your skills in your chosen discipline while working in an authentic environment. During the internship, you will put into practice the knowledge and skills you have gained while studying your discipline units. You will reflect on your developing practical skills and your learning experiences in the context of WIL, while also putting into practice your soft skills including teamwork and communication. You will spend ten weeks with your internship host during your last term and the remaining three weeks on campus.
