Student Placements

QPASTT recognises the importance of student placements in providing an opportunity for students to integrate theory and practice, establish a work history and create networking contacts.

Student Placements at QPASTT can assist with group work, project work, client activities and research. QPASTT cannot offer placements for counselling students requiring face-to-face counselling experience.

Please note that QPASTT only has limited capacity to host students each semester and cannot accept all applications.  We recommend students ensure they have back up placement options available.

QPASTT can offer placement opportunities in the following disciplines:

Social Work – Bachelor level and above

Occupational Therapy – Bachelor level and above

Public Health – Bachelor level and above

Art Therapy – Bachelor level and above

We cannot consider applications from students enrolled in Certificate level or Diploma level courses.
