Work-ready graduates are a valuable commodity in today’s marketplace, and initiatives to attract and recruit them are paramount

As part of the Industry Affiliates Program, the WIL office places students in a real workplace to complete a real industry project. An integral part of their degree, the IAP is designed to bridge the gap between being a student and entering the workplace by offering students the opportunity to practice the skills of their profession and gain experience in a work environment.

The program is structured to benefit both industry and students with Griffith University managing the program and tracking student milestones and progress to ensure project success and academic outcomes are achieved.

What can WIL do for your business?

  • Provide access to final year students.
  • Become an addition to your recruitment strategies.
  • Update your organisation’s research and development initiatives.
  • Create qualified project outcomes of a graduate calibre.

Student placement

Our program runs each Trimester over a 12-week period from late February to mid-May, July to September or October to February. Depending on the WIL course a student is enrolled in, they work on a full-time (5 days) or part-time (1 or 2 days) basis.

Student monitoring

Griffith University manages the program and tracks student milestones through assessment pieces.

Each student receives dual supervision, being allocated an industry supervisor and a University academic supervisor.
