Organise internships or work experience

Are you looking to engage University students for internships or degree-related work experiences? Here's what you need to know.

Short term experiential opportunities can be known as:

  • internships
  • vacation or summer / winter programs
  • Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

Advertise your internship or degree-related work experience opportunities on our online jobs board Careers Online. All opportunities must comply with our Careers Online terms and conditions and FairWork legislation.

Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

WIL programs differ in format across different faculties, and can be structured as:

Subjects (WIL subject)

An elective subject offered as part of a student's degree, for which they get credit. Students work for a host organisation under a negotiated arrangement which can be from an intensive two week experience up to semester or year-long engagement. WIL can involve one student or teams of students.

Placements (WIL fit for practice)

Clinical placements for professional courses such as education and medicine.

Volunteering (WIL volunteer)

Students observe and undertake minimal activities within an organisation. These opportunities must meet the volunteer definitions in the FairWork legislation.
