Benefits to the organisation

There are many benefits of a WIL experience for industry partners as well as for students.

As an international student, you may be able to offer additional skills to an organisation such as:

  • Access to enthusiastic and talented international students who offer a different cultural perspective
  • Additional language skills. These may be very useful if the organisation works with partners based overseas
  • Insight into export markets
  • Sharing your cultural skills with their departments and help their staff to also grow and develop
  • Connect with and develop new relationships with local customers
  • Attract and retain the best graduate talent
