Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

Work experience can make all the difference when you graduate and apply for jobs. Enhance your job prospects with real world experience and gain credit towards your degree.

At Deakin, Work Integrated Learning (WIL) develops your employability through experiences in professional environments, working on the kinds of tasks that are typically assigned to graduates.

The Faculty of Business and Law offers several flexible WIL programs for students in all levels  and disciplines. These include onsite placements and internships, domestic and international experiences, as well as classroom or online options. A WIL experience helps prepare you for the expectations of your chosen profession and career path.

Depending on your course, WIL may be a compulsory or elective unit of study. It is your responsibility to ensure that taking a WIL unit contributes towards your course requirements, and will not prevent you from meeting your course rules. Please speak with a Student Adviser if you are unsure; you can contact them on or (03) 9244 6555.
