COVID-19 has prompted many of us to rethink different aspects of our lives – from our social calendar to our exercise regime. But the aspect that’s experiencing a bigger shake-up than most is work.

If you’re re-evaluating your life, studies or career, here are six perfectly natural reasons to enrol in one of Endeavour’s new Undergraduate Certificates

#1 Dip your toe in with a natural health short course

If you’ve got an inkling that a natural health career is for you, but you’re not ready to commit to three or four years of full-time study, then use one of Endeavour’s four new short courses to test the waters. Take the Undergraduate Certificate in History and Philosophy of Complementary Medicine, for example. In this natural health short course, you’ll learn about the history and culture of complementary medicine and some of its major fields of study.

#2 Graduate in six months

Yes, that’s right! After just six months of full-time study, you could be holding a shiny, new undergraduate certificate in natural health. Our short courses are also completely online, giving you the flexibility to study where and when suits you best.

#3 Pivot or upskill in a growth industry

Our shorts courses are designed to help enhance your job prospects or pave a new career path in the health sector. If you’re looking to upskill in an industry that continues to outpace growth in the broader economy, Endeavour’s four new courses are for you.

The Undergraduate Certificate in Building Health Through Nutrition is exclusively offered by Endeavour College. In this short course, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of human nutrition and an introduction to food-based science, including food spoilage, food additives, and natural toxins. Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals are among those people expected to benefit most from this course.

#4 Get ahead in health science

You might be thinking of studying health science, but you’re not quite ready yet. These short courses are a pathway to further study. You’ll receive credits towards health science degrees at Endeavour or elsewhere. Plus, you’ll have new skills in communication, critical thinking, organisation and digital literacy whether you decide to continue your studies or not.

If you’re fascinated by human biology, chemistry and biochemistry, you may want to look closer at our new Undergraduate Certificate in Human Biology. In this course, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of human biology and get an opportunity to develop the skills required for higher education

#5 Be part of something bigger

Disillusioned with business solely for profit, many people can see the opportunity to be part of improving how the world runs. Many Australians have experienced the benefits of complementary medicine. According to research conducted by Australia’s Complementary Medicines Industry Audit in 2019, most Australians (73%) have used at least one form of complementary medicine in the last year and a third use complementary medicines to manage the symptoms of chronic disease.

#6 Use uncertainty to your advantage

During times of uncertainty, it helps to have a goal and to focus on something you can control. COVID-19 has given many people (not all) time to slow down and reflect on what they’d like to do next. Expanding your knowledge at Endeavour is an investment in your future as well as in your present health and wellbeing.

If you are interested in mindfulness’ ability to affect a person’s wellbeing, consider the Undergraduate Certificate in Lifestyle Coaching. You’ll gather a well-rounded set of skills, which you can apply far beyond the field of study.

And remember, you may be eligible for FEE-HELP – so be sure to ask about your payment options when applying.
