Content

The unit aims to provide students with an opportunity to engage in a three-month paid full-time work placement within an organisation as a means to build professional networks, develop transferrable skills and graduate attributes that will enhance future employment. As part of this experience, students will need to demonstrate self-management, ethical behaviour, effective communication skills, and the ability to apply their discipline knowledge in a professional setting.

Students will critically reflect upon their experience, relevant graduate attributes and employability competencies through a progressive assessment process.
