Research shows that this sets students up for successful academic performance when moving from Higher Education to Higher Education or VET to Higher Education study.

    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.

    Lucy Banks

    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.

    Lucy Banks
    Rose Pinter

    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.

    Dane Heuston

    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.
