UOW Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects

What is WIL?

Work Integrated Learning, aka WIL, is an umbrella term for a range of approaches and strategies that integrate theory with the practice of work within a purposefully designed curriculum. WIL focuses specifically on experience (or simulated experience) of the workplace and contributes to career development learning, and may contribute to academic/subject based curricular. Examples include internships, professional practice, teaching and clinical placements, apprenticeships, community based learning and vacation work.

Importance of WIL

Often the missing link between an employers’ "wish list" and a student, is a track record in a variety of workplace experiences. WIL subjects address this link by enabling students to see the relevance of their course content applied to real-world situations. Not only do these work related experience increase student employability, they can also clarify their career intentions.
