Education

You may have to pay extra costs (for example travel and accommodation) if your course requires off-campus activities such as:

  • practical investigations
  • Work Integrated Learning (WIL)
  • embedded professional experience
  • professional experience placements.

Students undertaking professional experience will need to reduce working commitments during this period in order to maintain the required full-time attendance and related planning activities.

All education courses

Items you have to pay for Cost for 2019
International professional experience (optional) Approximately $5,000-$10,000 (flights, accommodation, living expenses etc.) depending on the overseas country chosen.
Rural and remote professional experience (optional) Approximately $1,000-$2,000, (travel accommodation, living expenses etc.) depending on the location in Queensland.
Brisbane-based professional experience Students should check local travel arrangements for costs (e.g. bus, train, car, ferries etc.)
Workwear for professional experience - students must wear smart casual clothing. Some sites may require more formal wear, e.g. tie, jacket in some independent schools Varies

Literacy and numeracy test for initial teacher education students

If you study an initial teacher education course (undergraduate and postgraduate) at QUT, i.e. Bachelor of Education or Master of Teaching course, you must pass a national Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education Students before you complete your course. The test will assess your personal literacy and numeracy skills.

QUT provides you with one reimbursement to cover the cost of the test but won't pay for any administration charges you incur if you don't sit your test. If you don't pass the test, you will have to pay for any additional times you take the test.

Working with children check: blue card

For Queensland and international professional experience placements, you need a blue card. This involves a criminal history check so that you can undertake professional experience in a school or site, or activities in any unit which may involve contact with children or young people (under the age of 18).

As a QUT student, you can apply for a blue card through QUT for free. Submit your blue card application to HiQ as soon as you've received your offer. To be eligible to start your placement, you must submit your blue card application, renewal or linking form to HiQ at least 10 weeks before the start of professional experience.

If you don't receive your blue card (or link your existing valid card to QUT) before the start of professional experience or a unit where you'll be working with children, you may not be able to participate and your grades may be affected. You may also be liable to pay fees for the unit.

For placements in other Australian states and territories, you must fulfill that state's or territory's requirements for working with children and provide the Professional Experience Office with a copy.

Health

Placement costs

Students in all Faculty of Health courses (including double degrees) who are required to undertake placements off-campus may have additional costs, such as:

  • uniforms (including footwear)
  • criminal history checks
  • health and fitness tests
  • equipment
  • travel (e.g. public transport, your vehicle expenses, parking)

In your financial planning, it's important to consider that you may have to reduce or temporarily cease your work commitments during placements to maintain the required attendance.

You're required to maintain suitable dress standards in clinical and placement situations. You may need to budget for some items in addition to the uniform requirements for a course.
