Applying Psychology (3030PSY)

This is a work-integrated-learning (WIL) course for students who have completed the first 2 years of their degree in the School of Applied Psychology. The focus is on completing a (minimum) 40-hour community or research placement, with on-campus attendance in classes required only in the first and final weeks of Trimester. Other learning activities occur online or in the field. The focus of the learning activities and assessment is on developing and demonstrating critical reflective practice. You will have the opportunity to experience working in a context where psychological science and allied skills and knowledge can be applied. Learning activities will support you to use your experiences and observations in an experiential learning cycle. Drawing upon what you have already learnt in your degree, you will start to plan how you see yourself applying those skills and knowledge in practice, after you graduate, in a purposeful way. PREREQUISITES: completion of the first two years of your degree, a valid Blue Card, and an Australian Federal Police check. Other mandatory Fit for Placement requirements could be needed for specific placements. Students are required to complete an application form as well indicating they meet the prerequisites and identifying their preferences for placement.
