Work Integrated Learning placements are short term opportunities to spend time working in an organisation to gain real-world experience linked to your program and enhance your employability skills.

Although you must be enrolled in one of the courses below in order to undertake a placement, you are not restricted to completing it during the specified dates of a particular study period. The timing of placements will be based on both your availability and the organisation’s, and assessment timelines negotiated with the Course Coordinator to suit the timing of the placement. An example would be a student enrolled in Study Period 2 but completing their placement as a 15 day block in January and/or early February.

See below for further information on the specific course relevant to your program and then click on the link at the bottom of the page to be taken to our new InPlace Student Portal to submit an Expression of Interest and view available opportunities.
