Undergraduate Courses

The School of Health offers a flexible and rewarding teaching program that gives you the advantage in achieving your personal and professional goals. We offer the following innovative, undergraduate courses:

Diploma in Community Welfare and Wellbeing
Bachelor of Community Services

The Bachelor of Community Services is designed to attract applicants wishing to begin or further a career in community services and welfare sectors as support workers, case managers or service coordinators. The course aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to optimise effective practice in multi-disciplinary health-related community settings and health care facilities. It aims to promote students' understanding of the societal contexts in which they work, their legal and ethical responsibilities, and associated development of skills in analysis and problem solving.

Bachelor of Nursing

The Bachelor of Nursing equips graduates with the key knowledge and skills necessary for the practice of nursing. Students who successfully complete 6 trimesters of full-time study (or part-time equivalent) exit with a Bachelor of Nursing and are eligible to seek Registered Nurse status with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA) as a professional nurse in Australia and by mutual recognition in New Zealand. The course aims to give graduates an appreciation of the value of life-long learning and a firm foundation for further study at a postgraduate level.

Bachelor of Nursing with Honours

The Bachelor of Nursing with Honours provides an opportunity for students, under the guidance of a supervisor, to plan and implement a research project in the area of nursing practice. Knowledge and experience gained by students through completing this program will contribute to the knowledge base for nursing practice.
