The Student Work Experience Programme is designed to help University students bridge the gap between academic education and work skills. It is a three-way partnership between the University, the participating organisation, and the student. All parties in the relationship assume definite responsibilities, perform
specific functions and achieve benefits as a result of this involvement.

SWEP has the following objectives:

  • Provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills acquired at the University
  • Enable students to develop new skills in leadership, supervisory and administrative roles
  • Expand students’ opportunities for learning from mentors, represented by professionals in organisations
  • Provide students with an opportunity for self-assessment in respect of their strengths, weaknesses and personal standards
  • Develop the liaison between the three parties, namely the University, the organisations and the students
