This unit enables students to complete a full-time, 12 week (60 working days) placement within the science field. Students will be required to undertake course-relevant work so as to gain experience as a Science professional and to apply discipline-specific professional skills and knowledge.


Each student will be assigned an academic supervisor and an industry supervisor during the placement period, both of whom will contribute to the learning and assessment of the unit. Continuous performance management and the submission of a Placement Portfolio at the conclusion of the placement form the key elements of the assessment for the unit. The portfolio comprises: professional communication documents (10%), problem-solving and discipline specific evidence of placement goals and outcomes (25%), reflections (35%), and a mid (10%) and end-of-placement assessment by the industry supervisor (20%).
