Student Placement

ASeTTS provides a range of student placements in collaboration with higher educational institutions. Through our Student Placement Program, we aim to provide a quality and meaningful learning experience for students to support their development as future health and community services professionals. We are committed to providing opportunities for students to expand their understanding of refugee experiences, and enhancing their knowledge and skills in working with people from refugee-like backgrounds and with refugee communities.

Our student placements can vary in length, and cover a wide range of disciplines including psychology, social work, psychotherapy, counselling, creative or expressive therapy, youth work and community development.

Student placements are arranged through the students’ educational institution.
