North Terrace Campus - Quadmester 1 - 2015

Students may seek approval from the Faculty of Professions Internships Team for a formal and structured industry managed work experience program, with a registered organisation, to be counted as experiential learning towards their degree. Consideration will be given to the type of work, the organisation/industry offering the work placement and the degree of relevance to the students study. The application and success in such a program is the responsibility of the student. Students must be able to provide evidence of their participation in such a program and complete the program to the satisfaction of their host organisation as well as an academic supervisor to be eligible to pass this course. Approval must be sought from the Internship Team before commencing the Work Placement or Cadetship. Should the host organisation be dissatisfied with the students? performance this will be addressed by the Host and the Faculty giving the student a chance to rectify their behaviour. Should the unsatisfactory performance continue and The Host decides to terminate the placement before the end date, then the student will fail the elective. Assessment will be based on demonstrating graduate attributes, and the students' ability to link theoretical knowledge and practical experience, and may include a reflective journal, internship research and review report, presentation, and industry supervisor assessment.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
