Introduction to Rehabilitation

Extend your healthcare knowledge and restorative care skills in the growing field of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation courses prepare you for clinical, research, and policy work in private and public healthcare.

Considering Australia’s aging population, and that chronic diseases are on the rise, career opportunities will only continue to grow.

Rehabilitation courses are ideal for health sector professionals looking to specialise or re-enter the workforce. Specialisations include rehabilitation counselling and neurological rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation study FAQs

  • Unlike when you study through a traditional university, you can enrol you in most of the undergraduate subjects available through our website instantly. Enrol in the subjects you’re interested in, and as soon as your study materials arrive, you can start learning online.

    As you start completing your subjects, you’ll eventually need to apply to your uni to formally enter your degree. Enrolling in subjects is a great way of becoming eligible and applying successfully. Check out the Registering in this degree section on the degree page you're interested in for more information.

    Postgraduate subjects are different. Most of them are restricted, meaning you’ll have to apply for entry and be accepted before you can start studying online. You’ll find information about the application process on the postgraduate degree page that you’re interested in.

    Enrolling is easy. You can enrol online or over the phone with a student advisor.

  • Before starting an enrolment, it’s important to read the entry requirements for your chosen course to ensure that you’re eligible to apply. If you don’t quite meet the requirements, we can help you find a pathway into your course through open-entry subjects, which anyone can study. Chat with us to find out more.

  • There are a lot of reasons to study your course online through us.

    • You can enrol without entry requirements 
      We have a unique open-door policy that makes it possible for everyone to enrol in university study, no matter their academic history. If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a degree, we’ll help you get in through single undergraduate subjects and transition into a qualification from there.
    • You have total control over how you study
      Upskill without committing to a whole degree upfront. Or enrol in a full degree, but take it a subject at a time. We’ll introduce you to flexible study options you didn’t even know about, so you can fit uni around what matters to you.
    • You’ll graduate with the same qualification as an on-campus student
      Once you enrol through us, you’ll study online with the university that provides your degree. This means that when you complete your qualification, you’ll graduate with the same degree as on-campus students.
    • We’ll help you navigate the university world
      Our friendly student advisors will be your guide every step of the enrolment journey. They'll help you compare universities, choose a course, provide documentation and understand your finance options.
