What is 'work immersion'?

“Work immersion” is a key feature in the DHA curriculum which involves hands-on experience or work simulation in which students can apply their competencies and acquired knowledge relevant to their track. Through work immersion, the students are exposed to and become familiarized with work environment related to their field of specialization.

The work immersion is part of the DHA Curriculum that consists of 80 hours of hands-on experience which the students will have to undergo to expose them to the actual workplace setting and enrich the competencies provided by the school.
