Professional Portfolio is a 20-week, 45 credit point subject available to Masters (Professional) students in the Faculty of Society & Design. This subject provides students the opportunity through situated learning to develop both their ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ skills in a real workplace.
The subject encourages students to combine self-analysis and reflective learning skills with professional methodologies to expand their analytic and strategic thinking capabilities. It also provides practical experience for students to appreciate the requirements of an industry workplace and develop their communication skills to improve their ‘work readiness’.
Students are provided with the opportunity to secure an internship in Australia which consists of a 210-hour work placement as an intern in a professional organisation. The student is mentored throughout their internship by both the Career Development Centre and a dedicated academic staff member to maximise the value of the experience. Students who wish to undertake the Professional Portfolio (Work Placement) require a minimum GPA of 2.0 to be considered.
