About this Unit
This unit is the field placement in a community social development project in a majority world country. International students may do a field placement in rural Australia. The placement is a minimum of 16 weeks duration. The type of work conducted by the students depends on negotiations with individual agencies and communities. Students are responsible to the community work project coordinator for their work. University staff provides supervision, although not necessarily in the country where the placement is located. Students are encouraged to arrive at a meaningful synthesis of theoretical practice elements of the course.
