Industry based learning (IBL)

Industry Based Learning (IBL) is a work placement program offered to students in our IT courses at the Melbourne and Bendigo campuses. It allows you to spend up to 10 months in paid scholarship placements or employment, gaining workplace experience and forming invaluable relationships with industry professionals.

Furthermore, the program is taken as a university subject, meaning you gain credit towards your degree whilst working.

This program is well supported by organisations who understand the benefit of gaining access to the brightest students, many of whom go on to gain full-time employment with their host organisation after graduating.

IBL is offered in a wide variety of organisations including the Government and non-Government sectors, small to large companies and local and international companies.
