Here’s what you can expect when you study with us:

Student in workplace environment

Industry experience

The best way to learn is by doing. In your course, you’ll have opportunities to undertake placements in industry or work on projects that have real-world application.

Education students, for example, can undertake placements at one of our partner schools to gain true-to-life teaching experience. Or design students could find themselves working with creative agencies on marketing campaigns; or architecture students may work with local councils to provide design plans that improve urban spaces.

For our online students, we’ll organise internships that you can undertake once you arrive in Perth.

Student working in professional placement

Professional connections

You can increase your career prospects through networking events, training sessions, professional development and industry guest lectures. Through these experiences, you’ll learn the latest issues in your sector and expand your networks.

Don’t worry – if you’re studying online, you’ll have these same opportunities as soon as you arrive in Perth.
