Tertiary work experience

The Tertiary Work Experience program provides unpaid placements for Brisbane-based domestic and international tertiary students.

Students are placed for up to 30 days each calendar year (or longer if it is a mandatory and assessable component of their study).

Suitable project work is identified and students are 'matched' to the relevant skills and knowledge required for the placement.
