A student participates in a work placement (“Placement”) with an external organisation (“Placement Organisation") if they engage in any of the following:
a. Student Professional Experience
This is a Placement with a Placement Organisation required by a course, organised and managed by UOW.
b. Work Experience in Industry
This is a Placement with a Placement Organisation required by a course, approved by UOW but organised and managed by the student and the Placement Organisation.
c. Work Experience
This is a Placement not required by a course, approved by UOW but organised and managed by the student and the Placement Organisation.
University students are eligible to undertake a Placement with a Placement Organisation provided that the following criteria are met:
- the student is a current and enrolled student at the University; and
- approval is obtained from the student’s Faculty/Department; and
- the Faculty/Department confirms that the Placement is related to the student’s studies.
Where the University does not have an existing Student Placement Agreement with the Placement Organisation, both the student and the authorised delegate of the Faculty/Department are required to complete a Student External Work Placement Application and forward to Financial Services. A letter will then be forwarded to the Placement Organisation outlining the cover provided under the University’s Insurance Protections. For further information please contact Financial Services on phone number 4221 5971 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: Please ensure that the Student External Work Placement Application is adequately completed with all required information as failure to do so may result in delays in processing and you may not be able to commence your Placement as anticipated.
The University of Wollongong releases a variety of tenders, requests for proposals and expressions of interest.
