Course overview

If you are seeking a career in allied health but are not yet ready to commit to a particular profession, this course is ideal for graduate-entry positions in clinical disciplines such as audiology, dentistry, nursing, medicine, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physiotherapy and speech pathology.

This course delivers integrated studies in human biology, emphasising applied human structure and function. It has a strong focus on anatomy and physiology studies. Your first year is interprofessional and taken with students from other health sciences degrees. 

There is an emphasis on the development of communication and learning skills in an interprofessional environment. The second year is designed to give you in-depth knowledge in selected subject areas including anatomy and physiology, combined with extensive laboratory-based learning in high-quality facilities. In your third year, you can apply your learning to explore areas of current research in human biology and life sciences.

Throughout the course you will learn to evaluate scientific literature. You can also learn the skills required to become a competent communicator and to develop problem solving skills in a collaborative, interprofessional team.

High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
