You are encouraged to find a fieldwork placement that relates specifically to your areas of interest and expertise. The Fieldwork Placement Coordinator can support you through this process, however, the emphasis is on sourcing and negotiating your own placement.
In the past, students have completed their fieldwork with non-government organisations, advocacy and policy organisations, primary and secondary schools, local councils and government departments.
Once you have sourced a placement you will negotiate with employer the timing and format of the placement, e.g:
- 6hrs x 10 weeks
- 12hrs x 5 weeks; or
- 5hrs x 12 weeks.
