This faculty-wide unit comprises a range of Work Integrated Learning (WIL) offerings to accommodate students from different degrees and with different aspirations. Students can participate in WIL activities that best suit their learning styles, abilities, requirements and interests. This unit offers a number of options; your choice will depend on your degree and your individual circumstances.
- 120 hours unpaid or paid internship in an approved workplace, with a workplace mentor who is a professional in your field.
- Students work in single or multi-disciplinary teams to real clients on real projects (when available) with defined time limits with industry and academic mentors.
- This is an experimental space primarily for Arts students who are interested in creative careers. In the Creative Lab you will discuss, define, prepare, develop and produce your own creative project; reflect on your creative practice; understand the outlets and/or audiences for your work; and consider how best to 'pitch' your work to others.
Work Based Learning. Available by application only to those students who are working full-time in their discipline, for whom the other streams are neither useful nor possible. Contact the unit convenor to apply for this option.
Further information is available on the Canvas site.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Please confirm all submission requirements on Canvas. Please note, all assessments must be attempted to pass this unit.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Please confirm participation requirements in your relevant discipline information on Canvas.
Required IT skills
Relevant and particular skills needed will be included on Canvas. Please check in your relevant modules for information.

This unit involves various types of work integrated learning and therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section.

If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied (e.g. timetable clash), it is recommended that you meet with your relevant Program Director to schedule this unit for a future semester.
