UNSW produces career-ready, global-minded graduates through professional experience opportunities with internships and our Work Integrated Learning program. You’ll put classroom theory into practice in real world scenarios. Both the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences and the Criminology subject area offer vocational experiences.
We offer two separate internship programs that can be completed as part of your degree.
As a student at UNSW Arts & Social Sciences, you're also eligible to complete a Work Integrated Learning course within your degree. This excludes students enrolled in Education and Social Work Degrees, which require a minimum level of work experience to receive accreditation.
The process involved in securing a WIL placement or internship employs a career development learning model that gives you practice in:
- Identifying your skills
- Researching opportunities
- Reflecting on values and self-awareness
- Building your resume
- Making career choices

How Do I Enrol in a Work Integrated Learning Course?
