If you have studied or are studying a qualification in Australia, you may be eligible for advanced standing towards Endeavour's degree programs. Use the Articulation Abacus to calculate your possible educational credits.
Endeavour College of Natural Health is one of the very few institutions in Australia that maps individual subjects into each of its degrees. The mapping process is complex and detailed but, when filtered through the Articulation Abacus, the result is a meticulously calculated pathway that truly matches learning for learning and sets students up for academic success.
We are continually updating the pathways available via the Abacus. If your training provider, qualification or completed course subjects are not currently listed, pathways to an Endeavour qualification may still be available as we accept pathway applications from many public universities and private institutions.

Student Experience & Satisfaction
Inspiring, validating, uplifting and challenging. It has been excellent to follow my dream and have space to explore and learn so much about different aspects of health. Over the years my goal has shifted from being a practising naturopath to working in research, to education (and my goals continue to evolve!) The course has always fostered my growing passions in various areas.
My Endeavour experience has been very exciting and enjoyable. Endeavour’s student services have continuously provided support throughout the last 3 years to ensure subject selection and timetabling is a smooth process. The lecturers provide unlimited support, excitement and dedication to students and their learning journey at Endeavour.
My experience at Endeavour has been life changing, not only have I learnt exceptional skills within the field of TCM I have also gained lifestyle knowledge which has improved my health and my attitude to life.
My study experience has been a GOOD challenge. From working full time to studying full time it has changed what I have considered myself capable of. Having not studied for several years, and never at a bachelor level, my study skills are still developing but as far as showing up on campus every day, I am grateful to be there and I love it.
I have been lucky to share my studies with a small cohort of classmates, all with very different ages, life experiences and goals. This has allowed the development of strong learning relationships not only amongst us, but also with our tutors and lecturers. This has been an invaluable experience allowing each of us the ability to have in depth discussions and pursue our interests at our own level and pace.
The lecturers are passionate about Natural Health and about sharing their knowledge, which is really encouraging and motivating. The intimate size of the campus is great and the staff and Student Services have been incredibly welcoming and helpful; no request is a bother.
