Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a term used to describe learning activities that use your academic learning in a ‘real life’ situation with a real industry or community partner. You may do an internship (placement) or a partner organisation might provide a project for you and your class to work on. These placements and projects are tied to one or more courses within your program and are formally assessed for credit. Learn more about Work Integrated Learning.

Awards, sponsorships and scholarships

The School of Design acknowledges academic excellence by awarding prizes for outstanding performance in its courses and programs. This activity is made possible by the generous sponsorship of industry partners, professional bodies and private individuals. In addition to awards and prizes, sponsorship opportunities also include named scholarships, alumni activities, industry-based research projects and named facilities and equipment.
