Work integrated learning (WIL)

Lucy Warren

Whether it’s called an internship, practicum, placement, clinical placement, project, wider field experience, supervised professional experience, professional practice or work experience, most USC degrees have opportunities for Work Integrated Learning (WIL).

WIL offers an opportunity to put theory into practice, develop personal and professional skills, establish job networks, and find out what it’s like to work in your area of study.

Students undertaking WIL have an opportunity to acquire and demonstrate knowledge and skills employers look for in graduates.

Experience can be recorded on a resume, and can result in work that can be added to a professional portfolio.
