Many of our programs include clinical placements and workplace learning opportunities so that our students have the opportunity to apply their learning in real practice situations.

Our staff conduct significant research that contributes to knowledge locally, nationally and internationally, while also acknowledging and reflecting our rural/regional locations.

Our programs provide supportive, flexible options for you to study health programs at our campuses, or via blended delivery. We offer a range of pathways to enter or build on your health career from certificate level to degrees and postgraduate studies.

Our teaching and academic staff are committed to delivering student-centred high-quality learning and teaching experiences, that are closely linked to and reflect contemporary health needs and contexts. Most of our programs of study provide entry-to practice in our disciplines and are nationally accredited, which contributes to the continued high employment rate of our graduates.
