Screen and Media Placements
Information session - TBA
Screen and Media Practicum
This topic allows students to gain work experience in the creative arts, screen and media industries by taking up a project or position with an approved industry partner. Students attend an Orientation with University staff, two seminars with the Topic Coordinator, and complete 100 hours on field placement. Topic enrolment is subject to approval from Topic Coordinator.
This is a professional training topic and pre-planning is an essential skill. You are required to by attend an Orientation session, have a clear sense of what you want to get out of your placement and have identified a potential industry provider/s before you can enrol in the topic.
Semester 1 Placement orientation - 11am, Wednesday 13th Feb 2013, Room 264 Humanities
Semester 2 Placement orientation – TBA.
Topic Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
Arranging your placement
There are two types of placement
A. Posted Placement - a small number of placements posted on this page throughout the year.
B. Self Initiated Placement - a placement you initiate yourself by identifying an organisation, company and/or person you want to do a
placement with. Students must discuss this option with the Topic Coordinator before formally approaching an Industry Partner.
It can take at least six weeks to organize a placement. Paperwork, insurance and agreements with the company are required to be finalized before you start your placement. Adhering to these requirements is part of the professional training included in the Practicum.
