Study pathways

This program has been developed with student flexibility in mind. Students can choose to exit with a Graduate Certificate or Health or a Graduate Diploma of Health, allowing the candidates to complete the program in smaller stages of study. Applicants who hold a Bachelors degree as their highest level of prior study will be required to undertake 120 credit points of inductor courses prior to progressing to one of the Masters streams. A student who has successfully undertaken a Graduate Certificate in a Health related discipline would be eligible for advanced standing of 60 credit points towards their introductory courses. In instances where a student has successfully completed a 'fourth year' of higher education studies in a health related discipline (eg. a three year bachelor degree plus one year of honours or a four year undergraduate degree, or a Graduate Diploma) the program for a Master level qualification will be a minimum of 1 year FT study or equivalent. Students who meet these entry requirements would transition directly into the second year of the program and into a stream of their choice. Students who successfully complete the Master of Health - Research Practice stream may be eligible for entry to a PhD program. International: Academic IELTS with an Overall score of 7.0, with no bands less than 6.5, or equivalent.
