Although COVID-19 vaccination is no longer required to attend Charles Sturt campuses, you may need to be vaccinated to attend your workplace learning, depending on your industry or host organisation’s requirements.
Get job ready. Work placements improve your practical skills and confidence. They also connect you with potential employers.
You'll gain real-world experience, using the same equipment your future workplace uses.
Each course has specialised requirements. Find out if you need to do workplace learning, and if so, how to get started.
Some degrees have compulsory requirements. To check your requirements, refer to your Univeristy Handbook. Make sure you follow the handbook from the year you started your studies.
Don't worry if your course doesn't have specific workplace learning requirements. We can still help you gain real-world experience. Find out about voluntary opportunities.
Workplace learning requirements are generally completed as part of your subjects. Check your subject outline for more information.
Due to the number of students that need to be placed, your WPL block won't always match the exact session dates of your subject enrolment. This can result in a pending grade. Don't worry, your grade will update once you complete the placement and supply your post-placement documentation.
There are exceptions to this rule. For example, engineering completes a one year placement at the end of the degree. You will find out about your specific course requirements from your Course Coordinator at the start of your degree.
You can find more information on your faculty and school websites.
