About your Health Practicum :

  • You will be manually enrolled in HLT326 when you have your mandatory requirements uploaded to Sonia and a placement allocation has been confirmed for you.
  • Whilst we will attempt to place you close to your preferred placement area this cannot be guaranteed and you may be required to undertake your placement outside the region.
  • All travel and accommodation expenses incurred whilst undertaking practicum are the responsibility of the student
  • To be eligible for your practicum you are required to hold a current Blue Card (linked to USC) and National Police Check. You may be required to meet other mandatory  requirements and this will depend on your host organisation. You will be    notified of this once your placement has been confirmed.
