'I became involved in QUT's work integrated learning program through studying an experiential learning unit focused on innovation. As part of this experience I had the opportunity to intern at Deloitte Australia in their strategic consulting division. I expanded my professional network, interacted directly with clients and put my classroom learnings into practice. This proved invaluable for my personal development, and led me to a role with Deloitte after graduating.'
'I'm a hands-on learner so I've worked either part time or full time as a paralegal while doing my studies. I wouldn't have been able to do this if I didn't have access to lectures online, and if the staff and resources weren't so readily available. Uni has opened my eyes to all the possible outcomes. QUT does a good job of giving you access to a wide range of placements, extracurriculars and networking events, getting you to see different pathways you hadn't considered before.'
