Internships help bridge the technical skills students learn in their degree to their practical application in industry. They help develop critical thinking, problem solving and hone communication skills and offer on-the-job training in specialised areas of businesses to build a students' understanding prior to graduating and starting their career. The benefits of internships apply to both a student's professional career and personal development and are offered across a range of faculties.
To be eligible for Work Integrated Learning (WIL), students must:
- Be in their final year of study, making them excellent candidates
- Elect to do the WIL Unit, so they have great attitudes and have specifically chosen to undertake industry experience
- Be fully insured by the university
