  • For placements within Australia sign the Agreement Here

  • For placements outside Australia sign the Agreement Here

  • If you have sourced the placement yourself, request your host organisation sign the WIL Agreement and attach your schedule for their reference. If you have found your placement on Careerhub, the RMIT WIL team has already organised for the host organisation to sign the Agreement.

  • Once you have been sent the final and complete version of your WIL Agreement, keep a copy for yourself and give a copy to your employer/supervisor.

Consult with the WIL Academic to have the placement approved

  • Once your host has signed the agreement you will need to contact the Course Coordinator or WIL Academic to have your placement approved.  Share the Agreement so they will organise the final signature.

  • You will need to provide a position description which outlines the key tasks and responsibilities you will be undertaking during the internship.  The position description also should clearly state the total number of days or hours you will be interning for. 

  • Email to complete this step.
