Deakin University offers a range of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) units designed to enhance our courses and maximise the employability of our students. We also encourage our students to develop a broader understanding of the communities in which they work and live. WIL provides students with an opportunity to develop real-world professional skills required by employers, along with broader workplace ready attributes.
Deakin has developed a range of WIL options to suit almost any organisation. We have programs ranging from general skills to industry specific knowledge relevant to your profession. The programs cover both unpaid and paid opportunities.
These opportunities are offered to students as a credit toward their degree or postgraduate qualification. The student must complete assessment tasks, which explore and recognise their understanding and interpretation of the work opportunity they have experienced.
Tell us about your internship opportunity and the relevant WIL team will contact you about the next steps.
Please note that if your organisation has less than 5 employees, you do not meet the WIL requirements of the Faculty of Business and Law, Faculty of Health and the Faculty of Science and Technology. Contact the Graduate Recruitment team to chat about your opportunity.
If your WIL placement is suitable for a Faculty of Arts and Education student, you are welcome to go ahead and send in your WIL placement brief, as this faculty does not have the same requirements for the size of your organisation.
