How work experience & a guaranteed pathway are a great match

Werribee Centrals football and netball player Julia Nash recently completed work-integrated learning with the Western Bulldogs’ event team while studying a Bachelor of Sport Management/Bachelor of Business (Event Management) at Victoria University (VU).

“This experience was pivotal in cementing my passion for the sporting events industry. It taught me more than any unit could teach me through theory and I came out of it feeling more confident in my own ability with organising and delivering events.

"The best thing about my higher education course is the work placement opportunities that VU offer. The two placements I undertook were a highlight of my time at VU.”
