Successful students will also be required to attend and participate in pre-departure workshops in May, July and September (video- linked to all campuses). If you cannot attend, you will need to apply for special consideration approved by your unit assessor. Non- attendance without special consideration may result in your place in the program being allocated to a student on the wait list.
Places are limited and expression of interest does not guarantee a place on this trip. Your responses to the questions will be considered in combination with your academic and placement performance. You may be invited to participate in an interview prior to being allocated an interprofessional health promotion placement overseas.
