Practical experience

Year 1

Students are exposed to authentic and engaged learning experiences designed to develop their understanding of work and the workplace.

This is reflected in educational plans developed in consultation with their Academic Coaches and based on a method or approach to practice from, for example projects, data-driven decision making, case studies, field work, simulated environments, design thinking etc.

Year 2

The second year of study builds on concepts of learning through practice from the diploma by introducing students to more complex learning experiences. 

Students will exercise self-awareness, initiative and judgement to manage yourself and professional relationships effectively. The application of tacit knowledge and capabilities will be reflected in a Practice Manual.

Work placement

A key feature of the course is the practical component, to provide hands-on learning which aims to enhance students’ problem solving, communication, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills by allowing them to ‘learn through practice’.
