At CapU, we know there's a growing need for students and graduates with more diverse skillsets. To meet this need, we're expanding our list of courses and programs with practical learning opportunities.

Help your students develop their skills and employability

Practical learning, or work-integrated learning (WIL), gives students the opportunity to put their learnings into practice. It is a way to enrich your teaching and set your students up for success as they connect with community and industry partners.

Opportunities can include research projects or design challenges that make up part of a course or options where students work with employers as a member of their team.

How to add practical learning opportunities to your course or program

As an instructor, you can arrange practical learning opportunities independently, or in collaboration with the WIL team.

If you're not sure where to start, reach out to the WIL team. They will support you in establishing the opportunity and its requirements.
