Undergraduate Monash Sourced Placements

What is a Monash Sourced placement?

  • The WIL team contact a host organisation and arrange specifically defined placements
  • Monash Sourced placements may be with a host organisation either in Australia or overseas
  • ALL host organisations must meet Monash University OHS guidelines and be approved to be part of the WIL program
  • Students are not required to be paid during their placements as they receive academic credit (the WIL team does not ask any host to provide payment to students for Monash sourced placements)

What kind of Monash Sourced placements are available?

  • Our placements are specifically secured for students studying the full range of programs in an Arts Undergraduate degree
  • We work with over 400 partner host organisations, so a wide range of options are available
  • WIL placements can be undertaken as a free elective or can count towards a major (with approval)

Please note: our team does not source journalism or psychology placements.

Student Sourced placements

If you have a very specific idea of the type of placement you would like or the organisation you would like to undertake a placement with, you should consider applying for a student sourced placement.  See our Student Sourced Placements page for information on how to approach an organisation and how to apply to use your placement to complete a WIL unit.

Placement Proposal questions

As part of the application process, you will be asked to respond to some proposal questions. We will use your responses to these questions to assess your application. If successful, you will be shortlisted for ONE of the preferences you have selected. You may not be shortlisted for your first preference.

Your responses may also be shared with the host organisation when we send your resume; we therefore encourage you to take time with your responses and make sure they are written clearly.

Please see the questions below with some information on what we need to know.
