This is the fifth of six professional practice courses in the Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Hons) program that consolidates and provides direct evidence of achievement of standards required by Speech Pathology Australia for entry into the profession. This course provides students with an extended period of professional practice experience across one or more of the Speech Pathology Australia range of practice areas of speech, language, voice, fluency, swallowing, and multimodal communication. Students are expected to demonstrate advanced, entry level competency for the range of practice areas in which direct speech pathology practice occurred on professional practice placement. Additionally, students must demonstrate theoretical knowledge at advanced, entry-level for these same range of practice areas in standardised simulated experiences. The course will provide a minimum of 240 hours (six weeks at 40 hours/week) of supervised professional practice placement (PEP) with flexible support from the university.

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
