The Swinburne Advantage

An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities. 

We partner with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Our degrees can include placements, internships, industry-linked projects, study tours and more. This is your chance to work on real-life projects, solve day-to-day challenges in your field and gain the professional skills that put knowledge into practice. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence, knowing you have what it takes to land a job by graduation or even before.

    Benefits of being bilingual

    It's never too late to learn another language. And not just because you can show off your impressive vocabulary.

    “Speaking another language can help improve concentration and multi-tasking skills,” Swinburne lecturer in Japanese, Dr Kaya Oriyama, says.

    “Being bilingual for a long time also helps protect and delay the onset of dementia by five years on average.”
