Engaging student talent for work placement projects.
At Griffith University internships and work placement projects are often referred to as 'Work-Integrated Learning' through which students apply their theoretical knowledge and skills in a real work environment. Work Integrated Learning placements are related to students' degrees, give them meaningful industry experience and often provide credit towards their study. They provide organisations with students’ skills to assist with projects. All unpaid work placements must comply with current Australian Fair Work guidelines .
