Course Description

In this course you will develop a major portfolio project that will help prepare you for employment in the Animation and Interactive Media industry. As a capstone experience in the program, you will create an original work of a high standard to show your abilities and creative talent, using knowledge and skills developed throughout the program. You will manage the production in terms of your own project development and that of other production team members where relevant. At regular intervals you will present and discuss your work with academic mentors and peers for feedback.

This is the designated Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course for BP203 Bachelor of Design (Animation and Interactive Media). This course will integrate work-based learning and academic learning, commonly referred to as Work Integrated learning (WIL), and will allow you to solve authentic industry problems or address real issues faced in organisations.

You may have the option to undertake an industry internship in this course.

Internship Information
An agreement including schedule and relevant insurance documentation is required to be completed before commencing each internship (local and international). International placements must be registered and processed through RMIT Global Mobility. In the case where a placement ends early, please refer to Changes or cancellation of WIL activities in the WIL Guideline.
