Access future talent

Work integrated Learning (WIL) is an integral part of curriculum design and delivery in our Health courses. We value real-world learning, which integrates theory, knowledge and skills of a discipline with professional and contemporary practice.

Our WIL program connects industry partners and clinicians with students through placements in their workplaces. Placements provide an opportunity for our students to gain hands-on, real-time experience in preparation for entering the workforce, and develop connections with professionals within their field. Placements provide our industry and clinical partners with an opportunity to contribute to the quality of professional practice, explore new ideas, and support the development of future talent.

Our placements take place in a variety of health settings, including public and private hospitals, private clinics, professional organisations and community centres.

On campus or online employer presentations are a powerful way to promote your brand to students and provide relevant information about your organisation and opportunities.

Our employer presentations are free and are promoted to students through a range of advertising channels. During peak periods (March-April) a lead time of one month or more may be required.

Mentors from all disciplines, industries, locations and experience levels can help support our current students as they prepare for their careers. Mentors help support and shape the next generation of graduates to achieve their professional goals, and this is reciprocal as mentors are given the opportunity to develop themselves further as leaders.

The mentoring community is a space to network with students to discuss topics, join interest groups, answer student questions, access resources, and build professional networks. QUT offer an annual Career Mentor Program (May-October) where you can be paired with a student.
