It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability will impact on meeting the requirements of this course are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and the Disability Liaison Unit.
This subject provides students with clinical experience of music therapy. Placements will be in special education and nursing home settings under the guidance of a registered music therapist. The placement will include a graded introduction to the assessment of client needs, the development of program plans and the provision of music therapy interventions. Students will have both observational and participatory experiences of working with clients and evaluating and measuring benefit from the intervention. Tutorials will develop students' understanding of professional practice and develop therapeutic skills for practice.
