ASSC – Education placements and WIL

ASSC Work Integrated Learning

Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

The challenge of finding a job is something that all students face following graduation. Employers value students with pre-existing workplace experience, and those who can readily translate what they learnt at university to the professional world are far more attractive to employers.

We strongly recommend students consider undertaking a WIL subject during their course to gain career-ready experience, make valuable industry connections, and gain insight into the types of opportunities available after they graduate.

Eligibility criteria apply to enrolment into WIL subjects.
