Student placements in the Library

The RMIT University Library has a history of preparing students for life and work through supporting Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and student placements. As partners in learning, teaching and research, we’ve also helped hundreds of students get real-world experience during placements.

Information for RMIT educators

If you’re looking to place a student in a program and see a logical pathway for a relevant WIL experience within the areas above, submit WIL proposal to get started. We will assess your proposal to ensure we can support a meaningful experience for your students. It is important that the proposal supports your students' assessment and prepares them for the workforce with industry-relevant experience.

General information on Work Integrated Learning is available..

Are you external to RMIT?

The Library is only supporting tertiary students for student placements at this time. Please email us on and we'll aim to support the requirements of your placement in the above areas.
