The experience

Overview

Travelling Studios

Travelling studios are ‘working laboratories’ for design thought and production. You’ll explore complex, real-life issues and devise solutions by collaborating with students from MSD and other universities. Exposure to unfamiliar cultures, places and people will stimulate your ability to think creatively and problem-solve. Travelling studios are a great way to bond with fellow students and forge international relationships. And they give you fantastic experience for your CV.

Previous countries include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, The Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and USA.

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.
