The College of Health & Biomedicine is committed to helping you achieve your goals in the health sector.

From nursing and osteopathy to paramedicine, our courses are held in high regard both in Australia and around the world. We have carved a niche in the osteopathy and dermal therapy sectors, being one of very few universities in Australia offering accredited courses in these areas.

You'll enjoy the benefits of customised, technology-enhanced learning and our strong partnerships with the healthcare industry. We also have a number of on-campus clinics, where you can apply your skills in real industry settings.

Flexible pathways and hands-on approach to teaching, learning and research provide you with relevant experience that prepares you for a successful career. We are committed to the internationalisation of the curriculum to enable students to gain global experience, and we also host off-shore students.
