The 2019 Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Student Support Scheme is an equity initiative funded by the Commonwealth Government grant via the Higher Education Participation and Partnership Program (HEPPP) to help increase access, participation and success of domestic undergraduate students from low socio economic status (SES) backgrounds. This University-wide program enables domestic undergraduate students from low SES/disadvantaged backgrounds to successfully undertake Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements, and gain professional experience through a targeted work placement scheme, which incorporates skill building and dedicated career planning advice.
The program aims to provide access and participation to students from one of the following categories of financial hardship:
- Domestic undergraduate students who are able to demonstrate they are in receipt of a means-tested Centrelink benefit
- Domestic undergraduate students who are self-supporting with an income below $56,000
- Domestic undergraduate students who are supported by family or partner and the combined income is under $56,000
