Important Privacy Information for Students

The Work Integrated Learning team is sometimes asked to provide additional basic information about you to the placement organisation. We usually only provide your name and your student identification number. The purpose of providing additional information is so that if needed, the placement organisation can contact you for important pre-placement communication. You may still be required to present any original compliance documents to the site on the first day of placement.

The additional information we may be asked to provide about you to placement organisations is:

  • your University email address
  • your mobile phone number
  • your date of birth
  • if you have a current National Police Certificate (National Criminal Record Check)
  • information about your vaccination status
  • your Working with Children Check number or similar information for other state/territories

We have also been asked to make your contact details available to other students of this faculty, who may be going on a placement in the same organisation as you or in the same rural town. This is to allow the opportunity for you to support each other during the placement period. The contact details we may provide to the other students would be your name, university email address and mobile phone number.

Some placement organisations may also ask you for your home address. We will not release this information. Unless it is necessary for them to undertake a National Criminal Record Check on you as part of their organisations policy, you are not obliged to provide your home address to them. If a "home" address is needed for any other purpose for the placement, you may use the street address of the Faculty, which is: Western Avenue, Susan Wakil Health Building, University of Sydney 2006.

We take your privacy and the privacy legislation very seriously. If you do not want to the Work Integrated Learning team to provide any or some of this information as indicated above, please notify us via email at [email protected] . We will not release any other information about you to the placement organisations or other students without your written permission.
