Course aim

To provide students with extensive and specialised practical expertise in applying their discipline knowledge and skills within a work integrated learning environment, to compile the outcomes of that experience as a professional and transferable product, and critically reflect upon their experience.

Course content


Students will undertake an internship or project with an industry partner. An internship is defined as a work integrated learning experience that occurs at the industry partner's physical location, supervised regularly while performing work relevant to core business. A project is defined as a work-integrated learning experience through which an independent project is produced by the student on behalf of an industry partner client (for example, a sponsorship proposal or strategic plan).

Students will be guided through a deep reflection of their work-integrated learning experience in relation to their studies throughout the program. Students will apply advanced and specialised expertise to document and critically analyse the practical application of discipline-specific knowledge and skills in modern organisations and prepare for transition to employment and/or promotion.
