Scheduled learning activities - campus

This unit requires students to complete a placement (minimum of 6 weeks full time and a maximum of 12 weeks full time) with an approved organisation. In addition, students are required to complete the online pre-placement employability modules (Ready: WIL Placement Unit Induction modules).


Students must contact their enrolment officer prior to enrolling in this unit in order to meet the selection requirements. 

Note also that delays in completing the placement could mean that the course will take longer to complete than the stated duration.  Attendance at the placement may be required outside the trimester dates.


The purpose of the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement-based unit is to provide students with an opportunity to work as a professional in their field. The focus is on the application of transferrable employability skills in context to the course knowledge and skills. Reflective practice is required to evidence industry-benchmarked performance and preparation for future career pathways.

Approved placements must involve authentic tasks, the sum of parts of projects and other duties, and must be undertaken in a workplace (be it proximal or ‘at a distance’), so as to experience working within an organisational culture. Work performed during the placement must be supervised by the nominated ‘industry supervisor’. Students who are supervised by someone outside of their discipline area must also be mentored by an industry expert in their field of study.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must demonstrate that they are working to the satisfaction of the host organisation (including skill competency levels, professional code of conduct and project output requirements) at both the mid and end of placement phases.
