COVID-19 Infection and Exposure

Students are required to report any COVID infection and exposure that will impact attendance for placement, clinical laboratory or class. Please complete the self-selectable WIL COVID-19 Reporting form available under the Forms tab, once you have logged into Sonia Online.

Mandatory Checks

You need to ensure that you have completed the following mandatory checks by the deadline given by your Placement Officer and that they are valid for the duration of your placement.

UniSC has a responsibility to ensure all students comply with the mandatory checks (requirements) of placement sites and UniSC. It is essential that each student maintains their own personal process to manage paper and electronic documents associated with these checks. Many placement sites will ask to see hardcopy evidence of all checks on the first day of placement, so it is the responsibility of each student to be able to provide these on request. For additional information on how to complete each mandatory check, please click on the headings below which will direct you to any forms, websites, or other applicable information that you will need to complete the check. Once completed, please upload the relevant documentation to the 'Checks' tab in Sonia Online.

ALL STUDENTS

PrePlace

PrePlace is a series of three online modules located on Canvas that you must complete once, prior to your placement. Enrolment to PrePlace is an automated process, so is directly related to your course enrolment. If you are not yet officially enrolled in a placement course, the auto process cannot be triggered.

Once you enrol in your placement course the process will happen overnight and PrePlace will then be available to you.

Other Mandatory Checks

Depending on the requirements of your host site, other site-specific mandatory checks may apply. These will be communicated to you throughout the pre-placement process. Other checks may include National Police Checks, Blue Cards, vaccination requirements and others.


PLEASE NOTE: You will be granted full access to Sonia Online, once you have been enrolled into your program.

If you have experienced extreme circumstances resulting in a delay to submit any of these mandatory checks or require further assistance with these checks, it is essential you contact the Placements Administrator on the details below.
