We have an extensive number of relationship with partners and external providers of ongoing work integrated learning opportunities for students. These relationships are governed by overarching agreements.

Overarching student placement agreement

If we have an ongoing relationship with an external provider who provides multiple, regular and consistent placements for our students, an overarching student placement agreement should be requested. All overarching agreements must be requested through the Legal Office using a request for legal form. Ongoing clinical placements for FedUni students with external Health Providers in the public health sector and the private health sector follow the student placement agreement guidelines provided by the Department of Health and Human Services, Victoria.

The University is required to periodically review and renew overarching Student Placement Agreements which are tailored to the meet the specific requirements of an external placement provider or when a Student Placement Agreement is initiated by an external placement provider. These Student Placement Agreements are required for specific WIL requirements such as ongoing arrangements for clinical placements across a number of discipline and programs.

The University process for the management of these type of agreements are as follows:
