Work-integrated learning (WIL), also known as placements or professional experience placement (PEP), is a unique form of educational experience that enables students to gain practical skills and knowledge within a discipline as a part of their study.

Information for current students


The Faculty of Health has launched a new placement management system called InPlace. This software will allow you to manage your own placement applications, maintain up-to-date pre-placement documents, and record your timesheets (if needed). The app is accessible on your web browser, mobile or tablet via your Student Portal. Currently this software is only available for higher education students. Access for CDU TAFE students is not currently available.

Go to InPlace

Organising your placements

Once you have enrolled in your course, you will automatically gain access to the CHHS Placement (WIL) Central Unit on Learnline and our placement management system - InPlace. This will provide you with all the information you need for getting ready to do your placements including your pre-placement documents, dates and opportunities.

Essential requirements for placements

Work-integrated learning and placement units are essential requirements of the course. Placements will be offered across the whole of the NT, although we will try and respond to your particular requests this may not always be possible.

Travel may be required to fulfil the practical components of the course. Placements are offered based on availabilities with organisations and refusal to accept an offer may jeopardise and delay the completion of your course. You will also be required to submit proof of vaccinations for clinical placements and security checks.

Inherent requirements for your course

Inherent requirements are the abilities, knowledge, and standards of conduct and performance that are essential for a student to achieve the learning outcomes of a course or unit. These may include compulsory standards set by professional registration, or accreditation bodies.

Inherent requirements are specific to a particular course but are not course entry requirements. To enable informed decision making about courses of study, prospective and current students should reflect carefully on the course inherent requirements. These should also be considered when undertaking your placements.
