Our placement partners are continuing to support these important activities and professional placements will continue unless otherwise advised. If a scheduled placement is cancelled, USQ will let you know and we will reschedule cancelled placements to later in the year.
If a placement is rescheduled, USQ will apply an incomplete grade (IDM) when results are finalised at the end of Semester 1. The IDM grade will not impact on your HECS-HELP or fee obligations. Importantly, all activities completed prior to the cancellation will contribute towards your final grade.
If your circumstances mean you need to withdraw from your placement, please contact us first and let us know so we can make sure the hours you have completed can count towards your course or program requirements.
Please check your StudyDesk regularly for updated information or contact our Student Support team.
Paramedicine clinical placements
Please be advised that scheduled paramedicine clinical placements have been impacted by a Queensland Ambulance Service-initiated communication, to cancel all student clinical placements, as a result of COVID-19 precautionary measures.
This means that you must not attend your paramedicine clinical placement shifts after 26 March.
An email with further information has been sent to your UMail.
If you have further questions about your paramedicine clinical placement after reading the email, please contact HES.Support@usq.edu.au or phone +61 7 4631 2974.
Your placement will continue as planned for the week beginning 30 March, in line with the advice from Queensland State leaders that Schools, while moving to pupil free days, will remain open.
We ask that at all times you please practice appropriate social distancing, in line with the Australian Government’s social distancing guidance.
If at any stage your placement is interrupted by a site closure, a decision to self-isolate or need to undertake carer’s duties, please contact the placement office by emailing Bela.Placements@usq.edu.au or by phoning +61 7 4631 2359.
