Work integrated learning for employers

What is Work Integrated Learning?

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is the integration of student learning with work practices and experiences to help build students’ employability.  Your organisation can benefit from engaging highly motivated students from the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) in for-credit industry experience. The goal is to connect students with broad knowledge and theory skills to practical experiences that provide benefits to your organisation and that, importantly, builds student employability.

Why HASS students?

Students in Humanities and Social Science (HASS) bring global perspectives and critical thinking in a world where the workforce is ever-changing, and jobs are evolving. The problem solving, research, and analytical skills learnt throughout a HASS degree are transferable and can be applied across diverse industry environments.
