Arrange an internship

Reach out to students in your field of work by arranging an internship. Our students are enthusiastic, motivated and looking for opportunities to gain professional experience in the industry.

What is Work Integrated Learning?

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is the University’s umbrella term to cover internships, tertiary work experience, field trips and vocational placements. 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 students to develop skills that will enhance the prospect of gaining meaningful employment and building their career for the future.
