Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects are designed to provide students with professional experience in an area related to their field of study or the career they are working towards. The aim of providing industry-specific opportunities is to enable you to develop skills that will enhance your prospects of gaining meaningful employment and building your career for the future.
News and opportunities
While most work placement opportunities are identified by students themselves, occasionally internship opportunities arise and are listed here.
