BWIL6100: Industry Placement

2024 unit information

This unit is designed to consolidate students' knowledge and skills in business while conducting an industry placement sourced by the Business School. In addition to the placement, students undertake a series of compulsory academic workshops and assessments designed to develop and demonstrate employability outcomes. During the placement, students are expected to engage with a variety of workplace situations, which will afford the opportunity to apply business skills and theories from classroom learning. This provides firsthand experience of how these skills and theories can support the solving of business problems in a practical business context, identifying opportunities, developing strategies, and designing processes, procedures, and management practices to enable an organisation to fully realise its competitive potential. Students are expected to demonstrate specialised knowledge pertinent to their field and/or discipline. This unit is graded as a pass/fail with set tasks students must complete, including the placement hours in industry. Permission is required to enrol in this unit. Further information and application process is outlined at
