A Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience allows you to use your newly acquired knowledge and skills in a real-life work environment. Work placements expose you to diverse learning opportunities that are not possible in a formal classroom setting.
The Faculty of Media and Creative Arts works with key employers to ensure students gain valuable on-the-job experience in their fields of expertise. For many students, work placement is the highlight of their program and often leads to future job offers and a smoother transition into the work force.
WIL ensures you are engaged with your chosen field, career-ready and excited about your future after graduation!
The Faculty of Media & Creative Arts has a number of programs with a mandatory work placement component. Work terms are generally completed within a scheduled time period in the final year of study.
