United Colleges of Australia works closely with service providers and other associations in the Community Sector to ensure we always deliver training in alignment with the most up-to-date industry standards and practices. A key component of all our courses is work placement, where students will be given the opportunity to implement their newly acquired theoretical knowledge whilst developing new skills and understandings in a real work place. Please note that you are responsible to source your own work placement as part of the requirement for your course. Facility check will be undertaken to ensure the host organisation is appropriate for you prior to signing a work placement agreement. If you are unable to source one, please contact UCA team to assist you with sourcing the appropriate work placement.
A specific period of time will be allocated for students to complete their job placement in the final term of study. The normal number of hours students to be allocated will be no more than 20 hours each week. According to overseas students' visa conditions, student visa holders are not allowed to work more than 48 hours in every 14 days period. Domestic students, however, may be granted for doing the placement for more than 20 hours each week when needed.
