Global Placements

Placements let you put into practice what you’ve learnt during your degree. When taken overseas these experiences deepen your academic perspective, and along the way open you up a world of networking opportunities that can enhance your employment and career prospects.

How does it work?

Placements are approved clinical or professional experiences taken overseas as a unit for credit, or as a ‘hurdle’ degree or certification requirement. Placements are offered in most degrees, with available units usually published in the Handbook or on faculty homepages.

Placements vary in length and timing. They can be taken individually or as part of a group, and may sometimes involve the services of an approved third party provider.
