Field education provides an opportunity for the student to apply the academic content from other courses studied in a direct practice context. Students are assisted in learning the skills required for effective community and human services practice as field education provides experiences that allow the student to make the transition from "knowing what" to "knowing how". Students will complete 260 hours of supervised fieldwork practice in an approved human services agency. For most students, this field placement is the culmination of their course of study and the final preparation before entering the field. In this way, there is an expectation that during the course of fieldwork placement, students will attain a level of professional practice equivalent to that of a new worker in the field.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
