Work Integrated Learning at Deakin

Deakin's Work integrated learning (WIL) programs give students the opportunity to undertake a discipline specific work placement as part of their degree. WIL programs take many shapes and forms and are known by a range of names such as internships, practicum placements, experiential learning, industry-based learning and professional practice. WIL placements are linked to academic units that are credited towards the course.

WIL plays a very valuable role in preparing students for graduate employment by giving them an opportunity to apply and consolidate knowledge gained in their course, develop professional work practices, experience work place culture, explore career options relevant to their discipline and develop professional networks. Graduate recruiters place a premium on students who have participated in WIL programs as they recognise that these students are work ready and are also likely to be making more informed decisions about their career choices.
