Put theory into practice with a work placement.


Step out of the classroom and get real-world experience with our Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements.

We work with more than 700 healthcare facilities, opening more doors for you to learn from practicing health professionals in industry settings. Many of our students gain fantastic interdisciplinary experience through the QUT Health Clinics in Exercise Physiology or Nutrition and Dietetics, where they work in partnership with other health disciplines.

Beyond local

Regional and rural

Make a large impact on health and wellbeing of people living in small communities in regional Australia.

You will gain valuable practical experience and get a unique perspective on healthcare needs, all while delivering important services to people with limited access to health services.


Healthcare is a global issue impacting people from all backgrounds and demographics.

An international work placement is a great way to boost your skills while experiencing a new culture and broadening your understanding of healthcare practices.

Real world experience

'I chose to study nutrition and dietetics at QUT because I love food, health, and people. The placement year was very challenging but provided insight into how wide the career scope for dietitians can be. I went from designing menus at an acquired brain injury unit to delivering corporate health days. I'm now helping people with their diet and exercise in my own business, Your Fit.'
