Work Integrated Learning (WIL) or placement activities are co-designed to be mutually beneficial to students and industry partners. These are invaluable real world learning experiences for students and present a great opportunity to identify talent for your workforce.

Established 10 years ago, our flagship WIL program PACE (Professional and Community Engagement), connects you with motivated undergraduate and postgraduate students through a range of practical activities on an individual or group basis. In 2022, more than 1,100 partners engaged in the PACE program.

Realise the potential of PACE

Meet and inspire students in our Global Leadership Program (GLP).

GLP develops our students’ international knowledge and leadership skills through workshops, events, and activities.

By sharing your expertise, leading a workshop, giving a keynote address, or offering a volunteer experience, you can help shape our future leaders.

More than 3,000 students are completing the GLP at any given time, reflecting a strong commitment to becoming socially, culturally and globally aware citizens.

Discover our GLP opportunities.

Support the brightest scholars with vocational placements.

Through our newly developed Cooperative education (Co-op) programs, you can bring high-achieving students into your organisation, for professional experience.

Benefit from their refreshing points of view while fostering their career progression.
