How to book your placement

1.  Go to Forms and choose the student placement agreement and fill this out

2.  Go to Placements and depending on what type of placement you are doing please choose the appropriate placement group.

A note about choosing the placement group: From third year to fifth year you are required to complete a minimum of 2 weeks in small animal experience and 2 weeks in equine/production/mixed animal experience. For your remaining weeks of ECE you can choose between small animal or equine/production/mixed experience or you may choose another type of practice such as exotics or wildlfe. This is what is meant by "own choice". Until you have made up your quota of the minimum for small or for equine/production/mixed, you are advised to book placements under the Sonia placement groups for these categories rather than under the "own choice" groups.

Students in the class of 2019 need to choose a placement group according to the timing of the placement (eg. a small animal placement in Perth at the end of 2019 would belong in the group Small Animal 2019 Q4/2019 Q1 Australia. Students in the class of 2020 or 2021 do not need to select a placement group based on timing - a small animal placement in Perth at the end of 2019 would belong in the group 2020 Small Animal Australia or 2021 Small Animal Australia.

3.  Using the Selection tab please choose the site where you would like to do your clinical placement and select the dates you wish to attend and then submit your booking. (Scroll up to the calendar, choose the day you will start the placement from the first calendar and choose your last day from the second calendar.)

4.  In some cases there may be checks you need to undertake before the booking gets logged into the system. To do this click on the DETAILS button within the placement group and scroll down to your booked in placement to see if there are checks that need to undertaken. If there are, then go to the forms section and choose the appropriate form, fill it in and then press the submit button. This will then log the booking into the system. (Make sure you submit forms rather than simply save them in draft form).

If the site you wish to attend is not listed as an option you can request that it be added to the system. To do this go to the Site Submission tab (above) and select "+submit a new site". Fill in the details and remember to press "submit". You will be notified when the site has been approved and you can then make your booking as normal.

If you need to change or cancel a booking you have made please contact Gill Faller .You must follow up on any bookings that you make in error so that they are removed from the system.

Please remember to send in a student statement of attendance form after you have completed your placement. We cannot give credit for any placements until we have received this form. To do this, choose the appropriate template from the Forms tab and choose the relevant placement group from the drop down menu before completing and submitting the form.
