Workplace experience

Our programmes have a strong focus on real-world learning, and our Co-operative Education paper gives Bachelor of Arts students the opportunity to apply their learning in the workplace.

As a Bachelor of Arts student, you spend your final semester working with an organisation on a project related to your major, a great way to get practical industry experience, while still being able to get feedback from AUT lecturers.

This provides an opportunity to reflect on the relationship between your studies, practice and your own skills. With this unique structure and the industry knowledge it provides, our graduates are not only experienced but have a distinctive qualification that sets them apart.
