Work integrated learning partner

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a term used to describe a variety of learning activities, experiences, approaches and strategies which integrate academic theory with real-world work outcomes.

The Faculty of Arts partners with organisations on a range of WIL activities, including internships and industry projects.

Through these programs your organisation gains access to our brightest minds, as well as unique recruitment opportunities by connecting with the next generation of leaders in their field. Our students come from a range of academic specialisations; such as the flexible Bachelor of Arts to more targeted graduate courses; and bring a range of skills, talent and passion to your organisation.
