The UniSA Business School offers undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to undertake placements in businesses of all types; large or small, public, private or not-for-profit, start-up or long term businesses. The program gives students the chance to develop an understanding of what it is like to work in their chosen discipline and to gain valuable experience for their post-graduation employment.
The program gives businesses access to a fresh perspective and knowledge that can assist in their workplace.
Students spend between 15, 30 or 45 days in the business depending on the course they are enrolled in. This time is generally spread over a 10-12 week period however could also be done as an intensive (i.e. 5 days per week). The key is finding the balance between student and the organisation, ensuring the student is able to balance other study, work and life commitments.
Student placements could be a particular project (or series of small projects) or, for undergraduate students, a more observational placement giving experience in multiple areas of the business.
