Build invaluable and sought after, employability skills and stand out from the crowd
Griffith Business School is committed to making students job ready by providing quality, industry work integrated learning experiences while they study. Our internships opportunities allow industry to engage with bright business students for hands-on learning in degree-relevant projects.
WHAT IS WORK-INTEGRATED LEARNING?
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is aimed at improving the employability of graduates by giving students valuable experiences that directly relate to courses being studied at university.
Work Integrated Learning in the Griffith Business School includes:
- Professional practice and work placements including local internships and Global WIL
- Field experiences and study tours
- Industry or community projects (on campus or in a workplace)
- Learning activities within virtual and simulated work environments
- Industry mentoring
- Industry experience and volunteer work.
WIL experiences include approaches and strategies that integrate theory with the practice of work within a purposefully designed curriculum.
The range of WIL experiences in the Griffith Business School also mean that there are range of courses on offer for you to choose from within each discipline area. These courses can be internship courses and even study tours!
Local Internship Opportunities
Students who spend time in the workplace whilst at university build valuable employability skills, highly sought after by graduate employers. Local internships provide 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. We also support virtual internships where students and industry partners who are remotely located can work together.
You can enrol in an approved course which also gives you credit towards your degree, or BYO your own internship opportunity (self-sourced internship).
Global Internship Opportunities
Immerse yourself in another culture, embrace new challenges and grow your resilience and versatility with a global WIL experience. Funding assistance and OS-HELP loans are available for eligible applicants. Additional short-term and exchange programs are available through Griffith's Go Global hub.
An internship may be the most important step in the success of your career. The Griffith Business School facilitates internships and industry experiences for Higher Degree Research students to allow you to gain practical experience, strengthen your transferable, professional and research skills, and build networks with industry, government or non-government organisations. We will work with you and your HDR Supervisor to support an industry-based internship.
Become an industry partner
Do you have a project or work experience opportunity available for business students? Register as an industry partner and we will assist to fill gaps in personnel and projects. Our enthusiastic students can help you harness fresh ideas and new perspectives, and help you stay in touch with current trends.
Internship leads to dream career
Griffith Business School graduate Azaria Bell has turned an internship opportunity into a career with Stonehouse Group.
Azaria’s initial placement with the prestigious financial advice firm was part of her prize as the winner of the Stonehouse Group Scholarship. Now an Associate Adviser with the group, Azaria says she thinks it was a combination of the theory and the soft skills she learnt while at Griffith that set her apart from other candidates.
Thanks to 'extra' opportunities
