Doctoral industry placements

Victoria University supports a range of industry experiences for graduate researchers, including industry placements.

The Doctoral Industry Placement Program (DIPP) allows students to engage with industry, apply transferrable skills gained as part of their research studies, and develop professional competencies. It is an opportunity to develop professional networks and strengthen future career opportunities.

Placements are generally 90 days in duration and are planned as part of the doctoral degree.

Placements can come from industry, government or non-government organisations.
