A major feature of the Graduate Diploma in Innovation and Entrepreneurship is the Professional Project – a 30 credit module that is your last piece of academic work. The purpose of this module is to provide you with the opportunity to understand the complexities of a working environment and to put the theory you have learnt in the classroom into practice. The Professional Project comprises two parts – a work placement and a research project. The work placement is unpaid and can be in any area of business. We encourage you to find your own placement and will consider your paid employment as part of your placement. The research project will focus on real industry research.
Students must have a B+ average to qualify for the opportunity to complete their professional project in industry.

Do you excel in your job but have no qualification to back it up? We can help you get qualified through our Recognition of Prior (RPL) Learning Tool.
While many people have gained work and life experience equivalent to that of formal study, they don't have that formal qualification to substantiate it. RPL allows you to use your current knowledge and experience towards gaining a recognised qualification through Informal Transfer of Credit.
If you are interested in applying, you can do so by emailing your profile through to: email@example.com.
Your profile will be forwarded to the relevant Team Manager to look at and determine if you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. Once this has been determined, a consultation meeting will be arranged between yourself and the Team Manager. There is a $75 fee for this consultation. At the consultation, the Team Manager will discuss which modules they believe you have the experience to gain Informal Transfer of Credit for and also what documentation you will need to supply.
