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 transferable 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.

Planned as part of the doctoral degree, placements are generally 90 days in duration with industry, government or non-government organisations.

Eligibility & guidelines

Graduate research students are required to read and be familiar with the guidelines and the outlined responsibilities prior to commencing any Doctoral industry experience activities (including the Doctoral Industry Placement Program).
