      This unit is triple-weighted and includes placement. Students should not enrol in any other units at the same time. This unit contains Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities that require students to meet mandatory fit to practice obligations prior to attending. Failure to comply by the fit to practice deadline will result in the cancellation of your WIL activity. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements. Students will likely have to travel away from their local area and placements are located anywhere in Australia. Students are required to support themselves financially (including accommodation, travel and living expenses) during placements.
