Post-secondary students are expected to have gained a broad skillset of capabilities upon graduating from their educational institution. One major benefit of work integrated learning occurs when universities or colleges offer opportunities for students to integrate their learning experiences as practical and experiential knowledge.

Although work integrated learning (WIL) is not new to post-secondary education, an increase in university initiatives are being developed to allow students to participate in WIL as a part of their studies. Based on evidence that indicates a positive impact of work integrated learning in multidisciplinary studies, the current general consensus agrees that post-secondary education should contribute to graduates’ practical knowledge application.
