What is Work Integrated Learning (WIL)?

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a term used to describe learning activities that use your academic learning in a ‘real life’ situation with a real industry or community partner. You may do an internship (placement) or a partner organisation might provide a project for you and your class to work on. These placements and projects are tied to one or more courses within your program and are formally assessed for credit.

So whether you’re studying engineering, health science, business (or any other discipline!) and you undertake WIL, it gives you the chance to put what you’ve learnt in the classroom, into practice and ‘test drive’ the industry. 

 These WIL activities are a key advantage on your resume.
