Internships and Vocational Placements
Vocational Placements, also known as Work Integrated Learning (WIL) or Experiential Learning, are a valuable way for students to get hands-on experience in industry while studying. The MSD Vocational Placement subject enables eligible students to undertake an unpaid, short term placement with a host organisation or industry that is relevant to the student’s area of study. Students are allocated an academic supervisor and a host supervisor prior to starting the placement. These two roles provide students an important source of support throughout the placement and the ensuing report is submitted for academic credit.

The Melbourne School of Design has a unique Studio teaching format for their Master of Architecture degree. At the start of each semester students select from an array of different studio concepts that change regularly to reflect the changing face of Architecture. Each studio iteration works to a different design brief so you can select studios that allow you to explore different areas of interest or build upon a specific one.
“With climate change, there is a need to shift our way of living. In my opinion, there is a need to design so people can be an integral part of nature, instead of our current tendency to dictate nature to fit our needs. I believe heading into the Master of Landscape Architecture is a step in this direction.” Girvan Tenggono. Master of Landscape Architecture student.
