WIL – A VALUE ADD
All Eduvos students are required to participate in a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) programme during their final year of study. In the WIL programme students are immersed into the day-to-day running of a department within an organisation. This practical work exposure provides students with an overview of what they can expect in future employment opportunities and within their field of study.
The WIL programme runs over 4–6-weeks. Students work on practical assignments where they get to apply decision-making, problem-solving, knowledge integration, and other 20th-century skills they have learnt in the workplace.
The Eduvos WIL programme is beneficial to host-companies and to our students. It affords different organisations the opportunity for soon-to-be graduates to render their services to the company, assist with operational challenges, and to provide new innovative thinking and ideas. Students, on the other hand, gain practical industry experience and exposure to start networking proactively for future employability.
Many of our students are offered full-time employment or work opportunities by the host-company, post-graduation.
Organisations interested in hosting Eduvos’ students for their WIL programme and assignment must please contact their nearest Eduvos Campus or
