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.

Studio Experience

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.

Toby Woolridge

“The theoretical framework of the Master of Property in conjunction with the practical implementation of professional work in the property industry provided me with synergies that helped to develop me as an individual and advance my career prospects. The opportunity for group work and information sharing between disciplines enhanced my interpersonal skills and ability to communicate with people from all different walks of life.
The Melbourne School of Design brings together a diverse range of students and University professionals from all over the world, who specialise in all built environment disciplines. This, combined with the University’s connection to industry professionals (who regularly partake in lectures and tutorials) is what made studying at MSD so valuable.” Toby Woolridge.
