Placements and Work-integrated learning (WIL) are an important part of your degree as it helps you bridge theory you learn in the classroom to the workplace. To be timely and successful in securing your placements, it is recommended that you start your research and applications at least one trimester in advance.
To see where WIL or placements sit in your course, check out your course structure or get in contact with your Program Director. A diverse selection of placement locations can be searched in Careers Connect under the Job Postings tab. Additional WIL and placement resources can be found under the Course menu in Student Hub.
Before you start a placement, you must submit a completed Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Agreement to WIL@Laureate.edu.au and a member of the WIL Contracts & Support team will be in contact to walk you through the verification process. Most placement experiences are unpaid, so it's essential a WIL Agreement is signed off by you, your potential Host Organisatiion and the University.
