Your study experience

Business placement opportunities

As part of our commitment to innovating curriculum design and development, we have recently appointed several Work Integrated Learning Coordinators at our Melbourne and Regional campuses. Work integrated learning means you'll get to apply your skills in the workplace, as you study. You can earn credit towards your degree through work placements or simulations. Work integrated learning is endorsed by the Federal Government and industry groups such as the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It will assist to increase your employability potential when you graduate.

Overseas study opportunities

Gain valuable overseas experience by taking part in a short-term overseas study program with one of our 100 partner universities in over 30 countries. Or spend 6–12 months in a student exchange program in destinations like Canada, the US, South America, Europe or the UK. Our exchange partners include the University of Innsbruck, Copenhagen Business School, Berlin School of Economics or the BEM Management School in France. See student exchange.

We offer four international study tours each year within the majors of marketing, international business, human resource management and international accounting. The tours let you see the practical application of your studies in a global context. Past tours have visited China, France, Switzerland and the UK. Additional study tours are available in our specialist business degrees.
