The Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) combines theory (philosophies and principles) and practices including acupuncture, moxibustion, medical Qi Gong, Chinese remedial massage (Tui Na), Chinese herbal prescribing and dispensing, and Chinese dietary therapy.
The course is approved by the National Australian accreditation body TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency).
"I chose Endeavour because of their course structure and because I could study some of the course online! When I contacted Endeavour, I knew it was for me. I felt comfortable, and the team addressed my concerns."

If you have fully or partially completed a qualification with another provider (either at a Higher Education or Vocational Education and Training level), you may receive advanced standing towards your Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) degree via our Educational Pathways process.
Endeavour is one of the very few institutions in Australia that maps individual subjects into each of our degree programs. We created the Articulation Abacus to provide a visual interpretation of calculating educational credit points, so you can see how close to gaining a degree you really are.
Your credits will populate here once you've selected your previous study details.

As this is an entirely new qualification, this course will first go through the same rigorous two-year accreditation process with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) that we have undertaken with all of our other successfully-accredited courses.
The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia accredits providers and programs in the field of Chinese Medicine.
Although the Chinese Medicine Board has accredited Endeavour College as a registered provider, the Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) has not yet been professionally accredited by the Chinese Medicine Board. Endeavour College has an application before the Chinese Medicine Board and a decision regarding professional accreditation of the Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) is expected in early 2024.
