Professional placement and work-integrated learning (undergraduates)
If you're a local student enrolled in a three or four-year undergraduate degree you may take six-to-twelve months of professional placement as work-integrated learning. This learning is then credited towards your Swinburne degree.
Note: Only international students enrolled in a professional degree can undertake a professional placement.
Credit for study abroad and study tours
If Swinburne approves your application to study abroad, you will enrol into the host institution overseas. You will earn academic credit from your host institution for the units you complete, however, Swinburne will not give you academic credit until your return.
Academic credit is credit for a unit or several units in your course. When you get academic credit for a unit, you don’t need to study it. You can apply for academic credit if you have prior study or experience that’s relevant.
Note: Academic credit will not always be equivalent across different institutions.
Some study tours offering academic credit have a unit code and you can enrol in them like any other unit. Costs and additional requirements can apply.
