Work Integrated Learning (WIL): for Students
The Faculty of Arts and Design (FAD) offers degrees that all have a cohesive core of work integrated learning for every student.
This starts in first semester first year through Professional Orientation, where students engage with industry professionals, their peers, student societies and their disciplinary academics to learn about the academic and industry demands of their broad professions and the career opportunities within them. In second year and third years they are offered diverse and often multi-disciplinary industry opportunities through the faculty-wide Professional Practice units which include internships, projects and studios.
Every student then completes their degree through their capstone Professional Evidence unit, where they draw on all their learning and work with industry on significant projects.
