The aim of this unit is to provide students with a second six months of directed, experiential learning opportunities in the real-world context of their professional placement.

Building on Integrated Professional Placement A, students have the opportunity to contextualise their university studies in practice, reflecting on and learning from workplace experiences and documenting their professional development.

Students develop broader professional skills such as complex problem solving, research and analysis, and adaptability and ability to understand, interact and respond to ideas and people of different work contexts and backgrounds.
