From counselling and occupational therapy to exercise science, nutrition and psychology, you’ll learn how to improve the wellbeing of communities and groups across Australia.

We believe the extensive services provided by healthcare professionals are integral to bettering the lives of our communities. That’s why we offer health degrees and diplomas at Swinburne.

Our health courses examine the physical, psychological and social aspects of health across the lifespan. You’ll develop specialised skills and be able to put them into practice through clinical placements.

You’ll also have access to a range of laboratories and testing facilities equipped with the latest technology. Swinburne is the only university in Australia with MRI and MEG labs on campus.

A health course could lead to a future in counselling, community development, disability, medical research, nursing, sport science and more.
