WIL Focus Group

Work Integrated Learning Focus Group – Survey Participants Wanted!

Monash researchers are aiming to improve the participation rates of tertiary students in work integrated learning (WIL) (also referred to as internships, placements, industry experience/immersion or work experience).

This research focuses on enhancing work integrated learning to better cater to students with disabilities.

We want to hear from you whether you have participated in WIL or not. The aim is to get a better understanding of your needs to undertake an internship as tertiary student.

While we are specifically interested in hearing from students who identify as neurodiverse, we are interested to hear from any student who has a disability (diagnosed or undiagnosed).

You do not have to be registered with your university’s disability support services to participate in this study.

Participation in this study is anonymous and will not affect your access to DSS services.

Complete Our Survey

You can complete a quick 20-minute survey and share what would help you to participate in WIL or what has / hasn’t worked for you during an internship placement. Your responses are anonymous, and we really appreciate your honest feedback.

  • The survey is voluntary.
