Industry Placement Program

Federation University Australia's (FedUni) Industry Placement Program (IPP) brings together leading employers and students from a range of discipline areas, to provide students studying at the Gippsland Campus with an opportunity to gain valuable industry experience.

Gippsland Campus students participating in IPP undertake a placement of up to 26 weeks with an employer in the same field as their studies. To help offset the costs involved in balancing study and placement, IPP students receive a scholarship payment of up to AUD $15,000.

IPP gives students industry experience while studying towards a degree. Students apply the knowledge they've learnt in the classroom, while developing hands-on employment skills that are sought by employers.

Our partners are leading organisations, including VicRoads, National Australia Bank, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, Gippsland Water and Latrobe City Council.
