Diploma of Health Science for international students

About the Diploma of Health Science

The Diploma of Health Science is a course which provides foundational knowledge and understanding of biological and social sciences as well as complementary medicine, which can be studied full time (one year) or part time (two years). Offering interdisciplinary electives which include Naturopathy and Nutrition, the Diploma of Health Science is the ideal way for you to pathway into further studies at Endeavour.

Benefits of studying the Diploma of Health Science

The Diploma of Health Science is the first course at Endeavour which can be studied entirely overseas, from your home country. International students can complete the Diploma of Health Science in familiar surroundings with the support of family and friends, while building a relationship with lecturers and the College community online.

Upon graduation, students will have study credits and may have the option to pathway into the second year of our Bachelor of Nutrition and Bachelor of Naturopathy degrees, which can be studied in Australia. The benefit for you as an international student is that you will already have foundational knowledge and an established network ready to welcome you to Australia if you wish to further your studies beyond the Diploma of Health Science (and a lowered cost of study due to the ability to complete initial studies from overseas).

While it’s important to note that the Diploma of Health Science does not guarantee an Australian Student Visa, what it does provide is the possibility to qualify for a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) Visa, which allows students to come to Australia for the purpose of gaining a quality education.

Key points for international students:

  • Study the Diploma of Health Science from overseas
  • Lower cost due to the ability to study from your home country and continue with current employment
  • Choose to study full time (one year) or part time (two years)
  • Classes delivered via live stream in AEST but are then available online to view at a time that suits you
  • Best route for a Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) Visa if you wish to pursue further studies
  • Pathway into the Bachelor of Naturopathy or Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetic Medicine
  • If further studies are pursued, students enter Australia with an established network which includes peers, lecturers and the wider Endeavour community
