It is expected that all students will attend all workshops. Student should familiarise themselves with attendance rules in the Master of Clinical Psychology Program. If you cannot attend a workshop, you are encouraged to discuss this absence with your unit convener in advance. Students must provide documentation for any absences, and if accepted by the unit convenor, provide a 1000 word summary on the topic/s missed (due by end of semester) in order to demonstrate competency. Students cannot miss more than one full day (or two three-hour workshops) in a unit or they will fail the unit. Material will not be repeated outside workshop time for those who miss a workshop with an approved absence. Delivery of material discussed in workshops will be assumed to be known by all, even those who do not attend. Please note that you may fail the unit if you miss any workshops without documentation given the unit is competency based, and students cannot miss mandatory workshops (outlined below). Students are also expected to attend workshops on time and work effectively with others.
Students cannot miss mandatory workshops, and if they are absent for these workshops they will receive a fail grade for the unit or should consider a late withdrawal if there are extenuating circumstances. If a student has appropriate documentation supporting an absence under exceptional circumstances on the day of a mandatory workshop, students may be given the option to attend the workshop when it is next delivered in the course (and receive a WHE grade until such time if approved by the ADE and meeting all other pass requirements for the unit) or complete an equivalent workshop approved by the unit convenor at the student's own expense (please note documentation will be required as proof of completion). Students should also note that absences may impact course progression.
