Placement Cost

Placement Cost

There are two types of costs associated with the Clinical Elective Placement: an application fee and a placement fee.

Application Fee

The application fee is a non-refundable payment of AUD $200. The payment is made during the on-line application process. This payment is not refundable under any circumstance once the application has been submitted and processed.

Note: Students who are enrolled at a university in Queensland, University of Western Australia, and University of New South Wales are exempt from the application fee. There is a check box available during the process.

Reminder: If considering applying it is strongly suggested the applicant ensures the Clinical Elective Placement Indemnity form is signed by their university. Refer to the Supporting Documentation page of this website for more information.
