Today’s universities aim to prepare students for a changing and complex world of work. This requires graduates to be adaptive and utilise their creative, communicative and analytical capabilities not just in familiar cultural contexts but in an internationalised work environment. This project provides a rich experience of work-integrated learning (WIL) by simulating a realistic, complex and truly international workplace experience that is difficult to obtain for all students in the real world, particularly in generic degrees.
