Partnered projects

Partnered projects give our students the opportunity to work on a real-world communication issue, under the supervision of a lecturer, as part of coursework.

Throughout their studies, our students collaborate with major organisations for partnered projects and real-world experiences.  Students participate in the projects they will face in their careers, working closely with local and global businesses to learn by doing, acquire important skills, and forge lasting professional connections in their chosen field.

Students engaged in partnered projects generate new ideas, strategies and campaigns, prototypes and sample designs, publications or finished works.

Our students work across a wide range of issues and organisations.

Find out how our students have partnered with industry on corporate and commercial projects for real world outcomes.
