Tailored placement for students

Mater is committed to the development of future health professionals, that's why our Mater Education team coordinate, monitor and evaluate placements throughout your study pathway. 

Student placement

Workplace experience placements are an integral part of study, consolidating knowledge within the real nursing environment. By applying theory to practice, students will learn in supportive environments across our hospitals in South Brisbane, Townsville, Redland and Springfield. 

We offer student placement opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying nursing, midwifery, medicine, allied health and other health disciplines through Mater Education or select university partners.

Information for Mater Education students

    • Placement may include day, evening and night shifts across weekdays and weekends; shifts and days will change each semester.
    • Allocation of placement may vary according to the acuity of the hospital and selection of elective units of competency.
    • While we make every effort to ensure each student secures the electives of their choice, Mater Education reserves the right to allocate electives according to availability and the academic capabilities of individual students.
    • Placement must be undertaken in Queensland.
