Work-integrated learning

Our health students undertake clinical (working with clients) or industry placements throughout their studies – many starting in the very first semester of commencing their degrees.

Placements provide a wealth of exposure and real-time learning, where you will gain a clear and vital understanding of life as a health professional. 

Placements can take place in a variety of settings, including public and private hospitals, private clinics, professional organisations and community centres.

Through our strong relationships with major healthcare and industry partners, including Queensland Health, placements can be undertaken in your local community, in rural and remote areas and, at times, overseas.

Whatever path you choose, you will graduate confident and ready to commence a dynamic career in your chosen field.
