Studying during COVID-19

Your learning experiences in 2021 have been designed to include opportunities for student-teacher, student-student and student-industry interaction and collaboration, regardless of whether you are studying online or on-campus.

The University of Southern Queensland continues to follow the advice of the Queensland Chief Health Officer's public health direction regarding COVID-19.

Under this directive, Universities must ensure:

  • large lectures only seat one person per 4m2
  • social distancing is observed wherever possible.

Smaller education and teaching sessions, including group seminars, tutorials, and practical's and lab-based lessons, are not subject to the one-person per 4m2 rule.

 
These changes will not impact on your progression into future courses and have been made to keep you and your networks of family and friends as safe as possible. The specific details about changes that affect your courses will be provided on your course StudyDesk. Please continue to check StudyDesk regularly for updates as well as your student email (UMail).  

The University’s primary concern continues to be the health and safety of our staff and students. Please ensure you keep up to date with the latest coronavirus information for the USQ community. If you think you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please follow the self-isolation instructions and seek medical advice by contacting your General Practitioner or the USQ Health and Wellness Team by emailing student.success@usq.edu.au or by phoning +61 7 4631 2372.

Please see the Frequently asked questions (FAQs) below for information on the latest changes, in line with updates and direction from the Australian Government about COVID-19.

The situation with COVID-19 is continually changing all over Australia and we are aware of the impact that it may have had on your study and placement planning. We can assure you that our Human Services team are working with external agencies to source suitable placements for you in 2021.

If for any reason, one of your scheduled placements is cancelled, it will be moved to another facility organised by the Practicum Coordinator. This will not impact your grades, HECS or fee obligations, and the work you have completed to date will still contribute to your final grade in these courses.

Placements are continuing for most students and our placement partners are supporting us with the backlog of placements due to COVID-19 cancellations.

We are in the process of sourcing placements for students who are yet to complete their placement requirements from 2020. These students will be given priority as we are offered placements from our partners.

Please be aware that placement dates may not align with the advertised placement blocks as we must be flexible with the availability of our partners to accommodate student placements.

In the scenario where you are not allocated a placement until later in the year, you will be awarded an incomplete grade (IDM) at the end of the semester. This will not impact on your HECS or fee obligations, and the work you have completed to date will still contribute to your final grade in these courses.

Clinical placements will continue for most students. To date, most of our partners who provide placements are continuing to support these important learning activities.

If for any reason, one of your scheduled placements is cancelled, it will be rescheduled to later in the semester/year.

We understand that these are uncertain and difficult times for many of you. Some of this uncertainty may relate to your studies, with particular focus on the security of your clinical placements, and your ability to continue the same.

Firstly, can we reassure you that the Professional Placement Office and the School of Nursing and Midwifery are aware of the current circumstances and working hard responding to these changing circumstances as they unfold.

Loss of placement

Unfortunately, some student’s placements may be cancelled by facilities as a result of COVID-19 precautionary measures.

You can be assured that our Placements office will be working with your Associate Head (Clinical) on sourcing placements for all those impacted as soon as possible. We will endeavour to provide further information to all those impacted as soon as possible.

If for any reason one of your scheduled placements is cancelled or paused, it will be rescheduled as soon as possible. We work with health services to ensure placements are disrupted as little as possible and re-started as soon as possible. We understand that these are uncertain and difficult times for many of you. Some of this uncertainty may relate to your studies, with particular focus on the security of your clinical placements, and your ability to continue the same.

The Professional Placement Office and the School of Nursing and Midwifery are aware of the current circumstances and are working hard responding to these changing circumstances as they unfold.

Getting vaccinated (where possible and as soon as possible) will help ensure that your placement experiences are not disrupted. Vaccination is a crucial part of the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ensure you upload evidence of your vaccinations to InPlace as soon as you receive each dose of the vaccine.

If you are in your final semester of study, organising clinical placements for you is our priority, and over the coming weeks we will be in touch with you to confirm your final placement/s. If you have any hours owing from previous clinical placements, it would be very helpful if you could forward that information now, so we can include those hours in our planning.

USQ is working hard to prioritise your requirements for completion, especially in the area of clinical placements.

Any Questions?

If you have any other questions or concerns please contact HES.support@usq.edu.au or your course examiner.

Should you have any concerns about your upcoming clinical placement requirements, please contact the Professional Placements team at clinical@usq.edu.au

Placements are continuing for most students however, all placements are subject to change should there be a resurgence in COVID-19.

If for any reason, one of your scheduled placements is cancelled, it will be rescheduled later in the semester/year based on QAS availability of stations and their PPE provisions, therefore you may not be allocated to the station you were attending previously.

In the scenario where it is later in the year, you will be awarded an incomplete grade (IDM) at the end of the semester. This will not impact on your HECS or fee obligations, and the work you have completed to date should still contribute to your final grade in these courses.

We would like to advise that all students, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are not permitted to attend clinical placements in the 11 restricted Local Government Areas (LGAs).

In light of the recent lockdown and in accordance with planning for future restrictions, multiple flexible arrangements have been put in place in relation to Post-Graduate psychology placements:

  • The USQ Ipswich Psychology Clinic is closed until further notice. Affected students are encouraged to use counselling lab and complete work in process, as ethically appropriate. The Ipswich Clinic Director is currently working within team and with USQ ICT to address current student access needs, as well as future support if the clinic is required to move to telehealth.
  • The USQ Toowoomba Psychology Clinic is operating as normal, however students who are affected by the current lockdown restrictions are unable to attend the Toowoomba campus. Affected students are to work directly with the Toowoomba Clinic Director.
  • In relation to all external practicum placements, whether the student is enrolled at the Ipswich or Toowoomba campus, or Externally, where students have been affected by the current restrictions they are to additionally follow the advice of the Placement Organisation as to whether they transition to telehealth during this time. Where the placement provider has assessed this option as suitable,  students completing placement activities via work from home arrangements will be covered by USQ Insurance. The decision to move to telehealth must be made by the supervisor AND the placement organisation.

Students affected by this restriction are advised to contact their Practicum Coordinator in the first instance. Psychology students are also strongly encouraged to access the Covid-19 vaccination program, as they are considered a priority group under Phase 1b of the program.

If for any reason, one of your scheduled placements is cancelled, it will be rescheduled to later in the semester/year.

In the scenario where it is later in the year, you will be awarded an incomplete grade (IDM) at the end of first semester. This will not impact on your HECS or fee obligations, and the work you have completed to date will still contribute to your final grade in these courses.

COVID-19 had a real impact on sport and exercise placements in 2020, and we may experience times in the future when placement facilities may be forced to close. If this happens, your placement will be placed 'on hold' and you will be notified when you can resume your placement. In some cases a new placement site may need to be sourced. The Placement Coordinator will keep you informed. While on placement, you must follow all health and safety regulations and COVID-19 safe plans as directed by the placement site.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the list of mandatory pre-placement requirements has been extended. All sport and exercise placement students will now need to also complete the following prior to attending placement:
