Students who spend time in the workplace whilst at university build valuable employability skills, highly sought after by graduate employers

We are committed to helping prepare our students for the workplace by providing quality industry experiences. Our work-integrated learning and internship opportunities allow industry to engage undergraduate and postgraduate business students for hands-on learning in degree-relevant projects.

WHAT IS WORK-INTEGRATED LEARNING?

Students who spend time in the workplace whilst at university build valuable employability skills, highly sought after by graduate employers. WIL provides the opportunity for students to apply knowledge gained through study in a real world environment, and develop the skills to gain and sustain employment and build a successful career after graduation.

WIL at Griffith includes:

  • Learning activities within virtual and simulated work environments
  • Professional practice and work placements including internships
  • Industry experience
  • Industry projects (on campus or in a workplace)
  • Volunteer work.
