We strongly believe that a Public Health degree should include genuine work experience in a public health workplace setting. In addition to meeting unit requirements, students can use the skills and experinces gained to develop professional networks and to further their career opportunities.
The study of this unit will allow students to engage in a structured period of industry placement (240 hours) which will be specifically designed and contractually agreed upon by the student, University and industry partner. The placement will enable students to apply their knowledge of public health program planning and evaluation, whilst developing an understanding of the professional requirements of working as a public health, health promotion or environmental health specialist.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
