We have the WIL, but what is the way?
On 21 October 2015, the Academic Board held a forum focused on work-integrated learning. Key questions were addressed from university and industry perspectives.
- Why would UTS consider work-integrated learning?
- What would we aim for students to achieve from this experience?
- Will this experience increase student employability?
- What is industry looking for when accepting students for a placement/internship?
- What skills would they wish students to have prior to their placement/internship?
- What value do they place on graduates having work-integrated learning during their course of study?
