Course Description

If you're interested in medical research, community health, rehabilitation counselling, athlete welfare, environmental health or health promotion - or even if you aren't sure which area of health science is for you - this degree can help you find your niche.

Learn about human biosciences, the role of health professionals and factors that influence health locally and around the world. You'll focus your studies by choosing one or two majors from second year. Study the health and sustainability major, with subjects in environmental health.

A major in public health will include studies in epidemiology and global health initiatives. Or you can major in human physiology and anatomy, or rehabilitation counselling, and study subjects such as living with chronic conditions. Our new sports counselling and athlete welfare major will include studies in sport development and psychology. Complete a new major in health promotion and take on subjects in community health promotion and education.

Positives: meeting new people and learning new things every week

Negatives: half of the topics seem useless and don’t interest me

My advice to future students is: pick something you’re passionate in if you don’t know what you want to do and you might find a career in it eventually

There's lots of theory involved in this course. I find the text books were quite vague.

It is an interesting course but I will be transferring out of it though. Seems to be an interim course for a lot of people.

My advice to future students is: Don’t pathway, get directly into the course you want to do.

Didn’t enjoy the classes. Teachers were too strict and the classes were too big. Didn’t feel catered for in the classes. Struggled to understand content

My advice to future students is: Don’t do this class. Do something more practical, this has a lot of theory

The course has quite a lot that I didn't find interesting. The teachers are pretty good but could bring in more useful, engaging material within the coursework.

My advice to future students is: Try to spend some time learning about each area to get an understanding of which major you choose.
