Social Work field education

RMIT connects with a variety of industry partners in a wide range of human services areas. Some partnerships are longstanding, while other industry partners are new additions.

RMIT students benefit from the partnerships by participating in relevant, challenging, and diverse field education experiences.

  • clinical (hospitals)
  • community health
  • youth services
  • family services
  • multicultural services
  • disability services
  • education services
  • aged services
