Faculty of Health Sciences

Our staff and students strive to improve the lives of others through the provision of world-leading health care. Everything we do at the Faculty of Health Sciences is guided by the values of excellence, dignity and engagement.

When you study with us, you'll go beyond the theory.  Many of our courses have a clinical component where you will be able to apply your skills in the real world through professional experience with some of our many partners, or in our own health clinics.  Under the guidance of experts in their fields, you'll deliver health services to students, staff and the wider community.
