Work integrated learning (WIL), which is the integration of work-based experiences to complement theoretical learning in a higher education setting, can provide students with industry experience prior to graduation, which can facilitate their move into full-time employment. This scoping paper, which is part of an Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency (AWPA) research project focusing on work integrated learning in Australian universities, aims to canvass the current academic literature and wider issues associated with work integrated learning.
