The MSEL program is built around participants delivering a project to a Community Partner. They do this within the learning context of university. By putting these two elements together, the MSEL program provides participants with a fully-realised project-based learning experience.
The project that are put forward to students are selected based on their potential to provide a meaningful development opportunity while also being a project that can have an impact in the broader community. Students are given autonomy over the selection of their project and will be solely responsible for its delivery over the year. However, some support to help students deliver their projects such as mentors and tailored workshops.
The type of projects put forward for students is different every year. Typically, there will be a variety of areas for students to select from including the option to take a project that is aligned to one’s studies or try something new.
