The class is run in internal mode. Because many of the unit hours are conducted at work placements, the on-campus portion of the unit is delivered via four 3-hour seminars. Please see the unit schedule for seminar topics and dates. Students are responsible for checking iLearn and/or email for updates to the seminar dates and times.
Students must complete the number of hours specified in their letter of offer. Work experience can be in any relevant organisation, including for-profit, non-profit or governmental organisations.
There is no prescribed textbook for this unit.
