Work-integrated learning

UC Careers can provide an overview of internship, work experience and WIL opportunities at UC, and can help you to find the right person to talk to about providing or pursuing these opportunities.

Work-integrated learning (WIL) refers to work experience opportunities to students which can include internships, projects, fieldwork and clinical placements. All of these are supported by the University if they are part of a course.

WIL has to meet the following criteria:

  • Students will engage with a stakeholder(s) to enhance and develop their skills and knowledge as part of their course and degree.
  • Students will connect and reflect on the content of the course and their engagement through some type of formal assessment worth at least 25% of their final course grade.
  • Some aspects of the student's work will be intended to be useable by the stakeholder.

We can connect you with academics or our employment co-ordinator based on your needs

(Note: if you wish to advertise an internship that is not integrated into a UC course, see how to list a paid internship on the UC jobs board NZUni Talent)
