Tell us what you think – workplace learning

UC is exploring how to provide students with better access to work placement opportunities with external organisations that combine theoretical studies with real-world practical experience.

Workplace learning has lots of different names including practicum, internships, professional practice, industry competitions, community service, client problem-solving briefs and more. It can take place on campus or with an organisation. 

If your study involves the opportunity for real-world practical learning (as described above), we would like to invite you to take part in a workshop to understand your experiences.

Workshops will be held at the following times (you only need to attend one):

  • Thurs 21 Oct, 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Thurs 21 Oct, 1:30pm – 3:30pm

Participants will receive a $20 Therapy café voucher and food will also be provided at the workshop. If you’re keen to take part, click here>
