The Graduate School Career Development Framework facilitates industry experiences, as placements, to allow you to experience current practice and develop networks while demonstrating and strengthening your transferable, professional and research skills.

Placements must be at least 30 working days in duration, and can sometimes be approved for longer. Opportunities for placements can come from industry, government or non-government organisations. 

Undertaking a placement can enhance your career options and assist you in developing skills in planning, strategy, communication and leadership. You will learn how to apply the skills you have gained as part of your research studies in the workplace, and establish new industry networks and strengthen your employment opportunities post-HDR.
