The lectures, laboratories and seminars will occur in two 3-week intensive blocks (at the beginning and end of semester), leaving a 8-week space in between for Work Integrated Learning (WIL). These intensive teaching blocks will require your presence on campus full time.
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) schedules are developed at the outset of the course, but will be discussed with each student at the beginning of semester with adjustments made as necessary. There are some additional requirements needed in preparation for WIL which will be communicated to enrolled students via the UWA student email address.
  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
