Will my degree have any value in the real world? Your success in the real world depends on how well prepared you are for it. Whiteboards and textbooks can only take you so far. Industry Based Learning (IBL) gives Swinburne university students the option to work in their chosen field between second and third year of study. Not only will you get paid to work, you'll gain valuable knowledge and real-world experience that no lecture hall can provide.
