Industry placements and projects
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is the umbrella term used to describe industry placement, internships and industry projects. Flinders University is committed to preparing our graduates for lifelong careers with a plan for work integrated learning opportunities as an explicit feature of all undergraduate courses.
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) at the Flinders Business is designed to give all undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to gain experiences that may help guide career choices, enhance professional identity and employability, and put theory into practice. Flinders Business is committed to providing student-centred, innovative, high quality learning experiences and views a work related experience as an essential form of learning.
WIL opportunities are offered to students where appropriate placements and projects are identified and where student’s knowledge and ability matches the placement criteria. Students are prepared for their placement, enter into an Industry Placement Agreement; and they are supervised in the workplace. Flinders Business is committed to connecting with industry partners and maintaining close relationships with community. For host organisations, taking part in a student placement or project offers benefits that go well beyond providing a foundation for tomorrow’s professionals. It can assist your heavily committed teams; allow you to assess potential employees; contribute to your community engagement goals; and foster a long term research collaboration with the University.
