What is an Industry Project?

Any applied learning experience that allows a student to take what they have learned from their studies in order to reinforce understanding.  In their application of knowledge, learning is enhanced or in some cases embedded deeply through experiential learning.  In some situations, they learn how to further adapt their learning as needed.

The content on this page is for information only.

There are many options available to satisfy this requirement. Please read the below and contact us if you have questions!


Common Unstructured Options include Work Experience and Industry Meetings


The most common way to satisfy an industry project requirement is by undertaking work experience, paid or unpaid, in a relevant context - then submitting proof in the form of a reference from the employer or a workplace colleague, which clearly specifies hours of experience.  Work experience is seen as highly desirable.

Participants with relevant, current or past work experience will be given exemption from this project if they can provide suitable references from employers that show they have already fulfilled the requirements of this project.

Other Options

Other options might include participation in a formal mentoring program, conferences, contribution in professional or amateur clubs or associations, working at or attending industry shows, seminars or conferences, or networking with colleagues in some other way.

Again, references (if credible) can be all that is needed to be supplied. If references are not applicable, perhaps any email threads showing involvement, or seminar information etc, can be a convenient way to evidence what you have done.


Common Structured Options include Workshops and Research Projects


Some students may find difficulty satisfying industry project requirements through common, unstructured approaches.  Differently abled, isolated, or incarcerated students might face such challenges. In such circumstances, the school may offer formal structured modules such as Workshop I, II, III or Research Project I, II, III, IV as options (depending on the course).

If this situation applies to you, you will need to discuss the structured options (and module selection) with the student services team. 

In the meantime you can review information on each of the modules mentioned above: 

Workshop I

Workshop II

Workshop III

Research Project I

Research Project II 

Research Project III

Research Project IV


For courses which require more than 100 hours (say 200 hours), there can be more than 1 option for completing the required hours. For example, 200 hours may be split into two projects each of 100 hours. This can be a great way to offer broader scope to fulfill course requirements and to meet the number of hours required. Some students may prefer to have 200 hours of work experience. 



If you have little industry experience but have completed a qualification it can be difficult to be successful in job interviews. When a potential employer sees that you have done the research, have taken the time to get to know the industry and have completed a formal workplace project, they are more likely to see you as a serious contender i.e. a person with genuine interest in the industry.
