Work Integrated Learning and Languages Studies

This cluster seeks to explore the role of WIL in language studies from practical and theoretical points of view. It aims to facilitate the emergence of common research projects, to design and disseminate educational placement models and guidelines, as well as to promote WIL practices across the tertiary sector.
