Professional Experience Placement Requirements
SAFETY IN PRACTICE COMPLIANCE
All students enrolling in Faculty of Health programs which include a professional experience placement component, laboratory and/or field activity are required to establish and maintain their capacity to practice safely via Safety in Practice Requirements compliance documentation.
The Faculty, in accordance with Safety in Practice Compliance and Risk Assessment Procedure (PDF 654.0KB), assesses student compliance with Safety in Practice Requirements, which include:
- national criminal history;
- working with children registration;
- medical, physical and psychological capacity to safely undertake the Faculty of Health Mandatory Functional Requirements (PDF 592.1KB); and
- infectious disease and immunisation status.
National criminal history and medical, physical and psychological disclosures can inhibit student eligibility to participate in courses. Students must submit the Safety in Practice Requirements compliance documentation to enable risk assessment to be completed before:
- semester one census date annually; or
- in case of late enrolment, prior to beginning study.
The exceptions are the Working with Children Registration and Immunisation Record Card check, which must be completed 4 weeks prior to first PEP.
Fees & scholarships
Domestic students enrolled in a full fee paying place are charged the Student Services and Amenities Fee but this fee is incorporated in the fees you pay for each unit you enrol in. Full fee paying domestic students do not have to make any additional SSAF payments.
Domestic students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place will be charged a fee based on the number of units a student enrols in. In 2018, this fee is $44.70 per unit. In 2018, the maximum charge for full time students is $298.
