Work Integrated Learning, or WIL, describes a range of approaches that integrate theory with the practice and experience of work. Common WIL activities include work placements, internships or projects in the workplace, completion of case studies, volunteering, service learning, work shadowing and simulations on campus.

A number of organisations have collaborated to develop Australia's first ever National Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Strategy. The strategy is designed to increase WIL opportunities to build the productive capacity of Australia's workforce, improve graduate job prospects and meet the skills needs of employers. Organisations involved include Universities Australia, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Australian Industry Group, the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Collaborative Education Network.

This Work Integrated Learning website was funded by an Annual Alumni Fund grant.
