     WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING

    Students in this course have the opportunity to seek a Work Integrated Learning placement with and industry partner equivalent to one semester of fulltime study. Such placements are available to students who have:

    ·         Successfully completed any prerequisite units,

    ·         successfully completed at least two thirds of the requirements towards the degree and,

    ·         have a Weighted average mark (WAM) of 65% or higher across their course, or

    ·         have a WAM of 70% or higher for the two semesters preceding their application.

    Students who meet these criteria and who wish to participate in Work Integrated Learning must apply in writing to their Course Coordinator by the end of Week 9 of the Semester PRIOR to the intended placement. Students should seek the advice of the Course Coordinator as to appropriateness of pursuing the work placement option within their course structure and also as to their eligibility to be considered. Selection will be based on academic performance, the application and a formal interview process.

    Students considering applying for Work Integrated Learning should note that participation may mean that they cannot complete the requirements for a double major or other potential unit set combinations within their courses.

    Successful applicants for work placement must enroll in and complete the requirements for CSI3345 Work Experience Project (for undergraduate students) or CSI5255 Work Experience Project (for postgraduate students). These are 60 credit point units and represent a full semester's study load. Students are advised NOT to enroll in any additional units while taking either of the Work Experience Project units.
