Real World Placement Program

The Real World Placement Program (RWPP) is a Student Support & Amenities Fee funded initiative aimed at generating opportunities in, and developing students for, quality co-curricular work experience and volunteering opportunities through strategic industry engagement.

The aim is to provide opportunities for students to gain valuable not-for-credit experience whilst studying, thus increasing their employability upon graduation and empowering them to develop a professional perspective from the outset of their career. This is achieved through facilitating meaningful connections with the Real World to support students' personal and professional development and to complement their studies.

The program is focused on sourcing placement opportunities that complement and support the existing WIL programs within QUT Faculties through collaboration and engagement.

As such, RWPP placements will be offered with the following structures:
