    Special needs, health conditions or disabilities

    Are you aware of any disabilities and/or medical conditions (inclusive of psychological conditions) which may affect your ability to undertake a professional work placement? If yes and if you have not already done so, please notify AccessAbility Services. They will determine if any assistance is available to you, and advise the Professional Placements team in negotiating reasonable adjustments in the workplace if necessary. Read more about our disability support services.

    Please note: If you fail to inform Professional Placements of any special needs, health conditions or disabilities that may affect your placement, then Swinburne reserves the right to make alternative arrangements to accommodate the reasonable requirements of the placement, industry partner or organisation, which may include altering the terms of your placement or requiring you to withdraw from the placement altogether.
