Industry Training (Work Integrated Learning)

At ICMS we believe that the best learning experience combines practical 'real-world' experience with a strong academic foundation.

All our degrees include Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects in which students undertake a placement with an industry partner (also known as Industry Training or Internship). At ICMS our undergraduates undertake a placement with an industry partner (also known as a Professional Placement or an Internship) within their chosen industry - giving our students a distinct edge over other graduates. Your placement is facilitated by our dedicated ICMS on-site WIL team who provide coaching and guidance throughout. 

Your WIL subjects give you a unique opportunity to:

  • prepare for your future career in your chosen field of study
  • create a great first impression within your chosen industry
  • develop strong professional and career networks
  • demonstrate and further develop your real-world employability
  • explore your chosen industry to best inform your future career decisions
Postgraduate students also benefit from a placement with some of the most respected companies in Australia with up to 600 hours of industry experience offered alongside coursework studies in our Master's courses. 

We believe that's why 90% of our students graduated with a job in their field in 2018.*
