Creative Industries

Work integrated learning

If you're seeking new ways to inject creativity into your workforce, or want to make connections with Generation Y, then you should become a partner of the our Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program.

Working with our students

The WIL program is available to third- and fourth-year students who are enrolled in a creative industries internship unit relevant to their course and discipline area.

Students bring to the workplace:

  • up-to-date knowledge and skills
  • a fresh perspective on the organisation
  • the opportunity to trial potential employees or resource a project cost effectively.

Students who participate in program graduate with more than just a degree - they build professional experience, make industry contacts and develop an understanding of workplace culture. Our students gain a valuable 'real world' experience through internships with industry partners, and the experience can be mutually beneficial for both your business and our students.

Our experience

More than 500 industry partners are involved with our WIL program every year to bring fresh perspectives and ideas into their organisations. We have further established partnerships with creative industries employers through QUT Creative Enterprise Australia, which has a proven track record in accelerating the growth of small to medium creative enterprises.

All creative industries students, including those in double degrees, can take advantage of the program by incorporating one or two WIL units in their final year.

Contact our Work Integrated Learning team if you are interested in becoming an industry partner in our Work Integrated Learning program.
