Diploma of Health Science for regional students

Pursue your passion for natural health – no matter where you are in the country.

Just because you don’t live in a major city doesn’t mean you can’t pursue your passion for natural health. With our completely online Diploma of Health Science, you’ll be able to develop foundational knowledge in various areas of complementary medicine as well as in biological and social sciences – a perfect base for you to launch your career in natural health.

Support your local community

We understand that a love of natural health exists beyond capital cities and that many people have a desire to support and improve the health and wellbeing of the communities they live in. By undertaking our 12-month full time Diploma of Health Science, you will be able to do just that.

“The most rewarding part of this career is being able to help others. When someone comes to see you and tells you that they’re feeling better because you’ve helped them improve their quality of life – that’s a very good feeling.” Talia Harvey, graduate

Career opportunities

After graduating, a range of career opportunities will be open to you including:

  • Working on project teams in community health, local and federal government or even in community gardens
  • Recipe and product development for your own brand or for local business. This could include developing your own products such as herbal teas, healthy meal packs, café menus and beauty and health-related products

As a regional student with responsibility for my children, I love that I can be there via Zoom with my lecturers and classmates, absorbing the knowledge without having to travel. If one of my kids is sick, I can still listen, or I can catch up later.” Tara Hansen, student
