Postgraduate courses in health

Online health courses to strengthen your career

Why study postgraduate health courses online?

If you’ve ever considered giving your health career a booster, there’s no better time. Health is Australia’s largest and fastest growing industry. It employs over 1.5 million people. People just like you.

Careers in health are expected to stay strong. For example, more than 60,000 new nursing jobs are predicted in the next 5 years. And, the number of psychologists employed in Australia is set to increase by 30% by 2023 (source: Job Outlook).

So whether you’re looking to expand your knowledge with a health course in mental health, disability, counselling, case management, public health or something else entirely – we can help you take that next step in healthcare. Better yet – with online study, you can fit it in around your existing work commitments.
