Work Integrated Learning (WIL) courses provide opportunities for students to undertake learning experiences in professional settings as part of their program of study.

WIL at UNSW must be:

  • embedded in a course and have an assigned unit of credit value; and/or
  • a program requirement for those professions that require a minimum level of work experience to receive accreditation.

The School of Art and Design runs three WIL courses to provide industry-engaged learning through opportunities with relevant industry hosts:

Interested in being a WIL Host?

If you're an organisation, institution or professional working in a field related to UNSW School of Art & Design’s offerings in Fine Arts, Design, Curating and Cultural Leadership, and/or Animation and Visual Effects, and would like to host a professional opportunity for one or more of our talented students, please register to become a WIL Host.

Once you're registered as a host in UNSW’s InPlace management system, the next step is to create a WIL opportunity in the system. Host opportunities can be viewed by Art & Design students.
