Apply now button

Professional, clinical and field education placement in metropolitan, regional and rural areas are a core and essential element of the psychology, social work and human services programs offered by the School of Psychology, Social Work and Social Sciences (PSW). The School is keen to support and acknowledge clinical and field education placement supervisors who regularly supervise students as part of their professional role.

We are offering a Field Supervisor Recognition Program with benefits and support for supervisors who are not paid by UniSA but who provide frequent and regular supervision of PSW students. The elements of the program are:

  • Twice yearly program intake
  • 2 year duration of benefits (Clinical Psychology 1 year)


  • Access to UniSA Library services, including access to the numerous online journals and databases the University subscribes to
  • A UniSA email address
  • Access to specific events and supervisors support activities
  • Certificate of Appreciation from senior managers


Any current placement supervisor or field educator who has provided primary supervision to 2 or more PSW students on placement in the previous 12 months. Clinical Psychology supervisor eligibility based on 1 student in previous 12 months. Ongoing supervision of PSW students at this level is expected and highly valued within the FSR program.

Current supervisors can apply to be considered for the program at any time using the online application. Two periods of application assessment and notification of outcomes will be undertaken each year.
