Course description

Restricted Entry course This course is restricted to fourth year students enrolled in PSYC4091 Team Research Thesis. The 2019 maximum quota for the course will be 75 students per semester. Enrolment will open 10 am Monday 14 January 2019 for both semesters and close when the quota is reached.

The aim of this course is to enable students to critically apply psychological knowledge to workplace contexts. Participation requires the completion of a period of approved work-integrated learning, in the form of work placement, to be conducted in an organisation that deals with issues relevant to psychology. This course also aims to promote the translation of psychological knowledge into effective practice through on-campus workshops and assessment designed to help students critically reflect on their learning and workplace performance. Enrolment is required two weeks prior to the start of semester to ensure that a suitable placement can be arranged. Enrolment after this date will only be allowed with approval, please contact for further information.
