Swinburne students completing an advertising major are now more likely to find employment in the industry. Our application to the Media Federation of Australia (MFA) for accreditation of our course was successful and evidence that the industry recognises that our students have the required skill.
The MFA have two programmes for recruiting talent – MFA internships and the M Grad programme. Accreditation ensures that our students are more likely to be considered when applying for either programme. Internships give students the opportunity to work within a media agency for approximately 2 weeks.
This year, the three students who applied, Rachel Kertes, Delwin Lim and Rebecca Reeder were successful and Rachel and Delwin have been offered ongoing positions. The agencies were also willing to work around their study commitments so it’s a great result for these students.
