Winter semester enrolment

Winter semester enrolment

The Faculty of Science offers a number of science Internship units during winter semester 2020. Due to COVID-19, these are largely Virtual Work Integrated Learning (V-WIL) placements, which allows you to remotely connect and collaborate with industry partners to gain practical work experience while gaining credit towards your degree.

It is not a simulation; it is an opportunity to be part of a historic change in the way we work, and to learn from the experience. There are exciting opportunities available.

It may be possible to use winter semester to accelerate your study towards completion of your degree or as a catch up semester. Please refer to the information below to check individual unit enrolment closing dates and specific details on how to apply.

Winter semester for the Faculty of Science will officially run over the period from 22 June to 17 July 2020 but Internship dates can go past 17 July with approval from the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) unit and the unit co-ordinator.
