Work Integrated Learning

What is Work Integrated Learning?

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is integral to your business, law, or arts degree.

WIL is a term used to describe a range of approaches that integrate theory with practice in supervised real-world environments, including law placement, paralegal placement, clinical legal experience, professional placement and internship. Other units, such as industry project and community-engaged learning, are also considered WIL units; however, do not include a work placement requirement.

The WIL units are often capstone units structured to allow you to apply and refine knowledge and skills learned throughout your degree.  Your WIL units offer the opportunity to develop your professional behaviours and competencies per industry standards.

Our WIL programs are designed in consultation with industry to ensure you are well-prepared for what your future profession needs. We have well-established relationships across our discipline sectors, intended to provide ideal learning opportunities as well as the chance to begin building workplace relationships and career networks.


Current students should refer to the “Where do I start?” books on the FBLA Undergraduate Student Workgroup site on MySCU.
