Work placements, practicum, field education

Deakin student on a work placement

Many courses within the four Faculties at Deakin University offer or require work placements, field education or work experience to students.

Many courses such as health, environmental science, politics and education have structured work placements in professional practice units. Other courses encourage students to undertake work placements for industry recognition purposes and/or to build their skills and their resumes.

These vary in duration from one week to one trimester, in time commitment during the placement itself and in assessment requirements.

Employers interested in hosting a work placement, practicum or field education are invited to contact Jobshop.
