  • Learning Outcomes
    Course Learning Outcomes

    Experiential learning provides opportunities for students to apply theoretical knowledge, develop and consolidate skills, reflect on practice, and develop an understanding of the relevant profession or related sectors. It is essential to providing real-world experiences.

    Each industry placement is expected to include the following elements:

    1 Professional experience-based, where the learning is in context with the student spending an appropriate period of time in the work/professional environment, or engaged with workplace institutions, individuals or issues;
    2 Relevant primarily to the student's area of academic study and, secondarily, to the student's career aspirations. Activities have definable academic underpinnings, and clear linkages with/to the knowledge/skill base of the qualification/education Program;
    3 Productive, where the student does 'real work' that has a social/economic value or definable benefit to the employer/placement/community, and can be measured by either outcomes or assessment;
    4 Structured, with formal (academic and placement) monitoring, supervision, direction (and assessment); and
    5 Assessable, with assessments linked to specific areas of study/academic Program.

    The general purpose of the industry placement or internship is to apply the knowledge and theories learned in an academic environment to a business workplace. Therefore, the learning outcomes associated with this course are consistent with the Program Learning Outcomes for the relevant course and the University Graduate Attributes.

    Required Resources
    Students interested in an International Internship opportunity are responsible for making their own visa and travel arrangements. The Internship Coordinator will manage the approval of the Internship for credit and allocate an academic supervisor, all other logistical information is the responsibility of the student. Students are requested to seek advice early in relation to visa and travel requirements, otherwise the opportunity to undertake the internship may be significantly delayed.

    Any learning resources required will be provided by the organisation or recommended by the academic supervisor.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
