Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is not available for this unit as you are required to demonstrate application of theory, knowledge, skills, and attributes from within your current degree and not from previous qualifications and/or work experience.
You are permitted to undertake an internship with your existing employer provided it is a specified project or a new role that demonstrates the application of your current degree and not part of a previous award and/or your pre-existing day-to-day work activities. Approval of the project or role will be required by the Internship Unit Convenor.
Students enrolled in a law degree must undertake an internship in an approved legal workplace.
If you have completed another internship as part of your current award, you will be required to demonstrate the difference between this internship and the previous internship.
