Work Integrated Learning
Developed with industry partners, the School of Arts & Sciences’ internship program allows you to gain 80 hours of valuable practical and professional skills within industry as part of your degree. Your internship may take place with a community organisation, business, festival, theatre, newspaper, television station, government department, trade union or lobby group. You are also required to attend internship workshops during one semester. These workshops provide you with professional development, networking and mentoring opportunities, resume and interview preparation, career discovery and value and character development in the workplace.
Academic support is available to all students through the university’s Academic Support Office (ASO). In addition to ASO workshop sessions and online resources, you will receive regular emails about the free weekly workshops available on campus during the semester. The workshops are designed to build academic skills and confidence, helping you reach your academic potential. The workshops run for approximately 45 minutes so you will have time to eat lunch and prepare for your next class. There is no need to book or sign-up – and workshops are free. They cover topics such as time management, essay writing and critical thinking, research and referencing, stress management, academic writing tips, language conventions, memory skills and exam preparation.
The School of Arts & Sciences has a range of state-of-the-art facilities including a fully-equipped Black-Box Theatre – a flexible performance space which seats around 45-50 people – as well as a 24-track lighting board and a costume and prop collection. The theatre is also used for workshops. Media labs with MAC facilities and photography and videography equipment are also available for students.
