Additional entry requirements
Clinical placements with Queensland Health
Students are required to complete the Deed Poll and Orientation Package before participating in clinical placement in Queensland Health facilities. Failing to do so may result in you not able to participate in clinical placement and your grades may be affected. You may still be liable to pay fees for the unit.
Your actual fees may vary depending on which units you choose. All fees are based on current fixed fee prices. We review fees annually.
2014: $12,400 per Study Period (48 credit points) (subject to annual review)
You'll need to pay some costs on top of your course fees.
You are required to undertake clinical experience in healthcare settings. As a result, you will have direct patient contact during the placement and may be exposed to blood and body fluids of patients. Consequently you must be vaccinated for Hepatitis B and must provide a post vaccination pathological report and a serology immunity report, or similar certification showing proof of immunity, prior to undertaking your first clinical placement. Students will need to cover this cost.
Students are required to undertake off-campus placements and will need to cover travel and accommodation costs.
