Management of Work-Integrated Learning

MANAGEMENT OF WIL

Work-Integrated Learning is managed through three areas:

  • Work-Integrated Learning Unit
  • Academic Staff
  • Academic Administration.

The integrated model involves a multifaceted approach of coordination relative to serving students, employers and the University.

It is done by centralising student placements and employer and marketing administration at the Work-Integrated Learning Unit and decentralising student's monitoring, visitations and assessment to academic departments.

The period of WIL differs from programme to programme.  These academic programmes have a compulsory component:
