IBL Success Stories
Bachelor of Health Science (Public and Environmental Health)"Swinburne was the only university that offered my degree, with a course structure and subjects that were attractive to me. I gained many skills and professional knowledge during my IBL placement. My placement was undertaken with the Victorian Department of Health. It provides the invaluable opportunity of industry networking to help in future employment endeavours. "
Bachelor of Arts (Digital Media & Marketing)"My course provides me with flexibility - there is an amazing range of subjects, which means I can learn about more than just one area of study. I've decided to major in digital media and I'm gaining additional skills and knowledge through my Industry-Based Learning placement. "
Bachelor of Arts (Digital Media and Marketing)"The marketing aspects of multimedia really appealed to me. I've enjoyed learning about everything from 3D modelling and web development to business. I've also been able to gain industry experience."
Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications)"The Industry-Based Learning placement I undertook gave me the confidence to achieve my goals. It made my path clearer and my love of writing and journalism even stronger. Without taking part in the program I don't think I would have the passion and direction I now have."
Bachelor of Arts (Psychology and Psychophysiology)"My Industry-Based learning year at the Royal Children's Hospital gave me the opportunity to gain some practical experience in the healthcare sector. I developed a vast knowledge of respiratory diseases and also gained a good rapport with patients and fellow staff members during my time at the hospital. With this experience, my career aspirations are now a lot more defined."
Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics and Computer Systems)/Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Sciences)

Bachelor of Health Science (Public and Environmental Health)"Swinburne offers a flexible learning environment, which is great because it makes studying as a mature age student a lot easier. I chose this course because of the variety of career options it offers."
Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications)"What I like most about Swinburne is the friendly, supportive learning environment and the central location of the Hawthorn campus. This course appealed to me because it offers a broad range of subjects; I'm able to learn about issues that relate not just to the media industry, but also to everyday life."
