Universities worldwide face pressure to equip graduates with skills and attributes that match industry and wider social and community needs. Therefore, moves to integrate work integrated learning – course offerings that embed authentic work elements, such as internships and industry projects in order to enhance student employability – into higher education curricula are gaining strength. Running work integrated learning (WIL) is resource intensive (Universities Australia, 2015), making its implementation controversial in domestic university environments, let alone transnational education (TNE) contexts.
