WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING
It is compulsory for our students to undertake Work Integrated Learning (WIL) or in-service training with local companies. This ensures our graduates can function as an active member of an office team as well as providing them with hands-on experience of the office environment. By reinforcing the theoretical concepts encountered in the academic environment, WIL promotes knowledge application, skills development and the formulation of a professional attitude towards work and the work environment.
