Real world learning
Industry connections and placements
'I chose QUT because the practical placement was incredibly attractive to me.
One of my placements (was with) Queensland Corrective Services. I was able to participate in programs for convicted sexual offenders and drug offenders to reintegrate them into society.
I'm now enjoying the challenges of working as a case manager.'

'I'm a law and justice graduate and work at women's legal service.
If I can help a woman separate safely from a violent relationship I get a real sense of satisfaction. It really is my dream job.'
'In my honours year I researched cyber-bullying motivations focusing on young Australians aged 13 to 18 years old.
This is a growing and important issue and I hope that my research can lead to more effective prevention strategies.'
