All students enrolled in a School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (SHRS) program have to comply with various program requirements. These requirements are to be satisfied at all times, from commencement to completion, for both enrolment purposes and participation in fieldwork, observations, and placement activities. This is because many of the courses you study will include contact with the general public. 

UQ has implemented an IT system to manage program requirements and placement/fieldwork activities, named InPlace. Please upload your completed documentation (except Blue Card Application and Immunisation Form) to your InPlace portal. Please refer to the InPlace How to Guide for more information.

Current students who have previously provided documentation via Blackboard will continue to do so. Over the course of 2018, the School will transfer student data from Blackboard to InPlace. When this occurs the Student and Academic Support Unit (SASU) will advise that your InPlace portal is ready for you to use for the upload of documents to meet program requirements.

Program requirements

Immunisation form

Students are required to provide evidence of their immunisation status for various diseases. This evidence is compiled on the Immunisation Form, which can only be completed and authorised by a Registered General Practitioner (GP), who is not a family member of the student. Forms completed by a party other than a GP will not be accepted.  Please refer to the Immunisation Form How to Guide for more information.

The SHRS Student and Academic Support Unit (SASU) will contact you shortly after commencing your program to request your Immunisation Form. This is to be submitted via email to enquiries@shrs.uq.edu.au.  

Any immunisations that expire during your program will require further action. Students are to ensure immunisations are kept up to date to meet program rules and requirements.

Blue card application form

Students must hold a current and valid Blue Card issued by the Queensland Government’s Department of Justice and Attorney-General. Students who wish to apply for a new or renewal Student Blue Card with the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences must complete the Blue Card Application Form and submit directly to the Student and Academic Support Unit (SASU), with 2 photocopies of valid identification documents plus the originals for verification. This must be submitted in person to the Reception on level 3 of the Therapies Annexe Building (84A).
