As the cost of living is rising, we, as students are struggling to meet the demand in order to do placement in the Healthcare Industry. We will be able to contribute back to society and our roles are much needed in demand. To help encourage us to fulfil our studies, should we be paid when doing our placement in Universities across Australia?

Absolutely. As unlike other studies, placement is mandatory so you cannot work a ‘normal’ job.

No. You already receive Commonwealth sponsored places and lower fees for your studies. Maybe you should consider studying part-time so you can juggle expenses and placement requirements for your study.
