Here are some comments from students who undertook the pilot program in June 2020,
  • "I had a wonderful experience as it helped me to explore my career interest and improve on my soft skills as well. I had an unforgettable experience in terms of learnings, team memories and dedication from all organisers of the program"
  • "As this was my first internship, it was a very rewarding one for me because I was extremely satisfied with my academic team who helped through every bit. It was like we could see and experinece the effort they put to being us all together and help us with our reports. This experience has helped me with my communication skills, professional experience and a lot more."
  • "I had such an amazing experience, working with real life clients and attending seminars where I was able to learn so much. I felt really supported by the academic staff as well."
  • "Such an amazing opportunity where I learnt so much and put myself up for a challenge that I didn't even know I was capable of doing. Had amazing support from my team members, the client and the academics and staff from Deakin. Would 100% recommend."
  • "As a mother with young children it was amazing to be able to work with an international team and company, having a cultural experience without having to travel as unfortunately that for my self at this time is not a option."
  • "The pilot Virtual Global WIL program was an amazing opportunity to work for some amazing clients and learn skills like Design Thinking and gain some consultancy experience. I had some great interactions with the academic team running the program and they were more than happy to give us their insights borne out of their vast experience. I made some great friends and learned to correctly leverage the connections I made to kickstart my career as a business professional."
