Want to know more about health issues facing individuals and communities? The Diploma of Health Science (UniLink) gives you an alternative pathway into higher education. You'll learn in a supportive and friendly university environment that prepares you to address wellbeing and welfare challenges.

Study Health Science to learn about global health science issues from a range of perspectives. Better yet, gain practical skills in the promotion of health and wellbeing. You'll learn how to do this as an individual, and also as part of a team.

Learn about concepts, theories, practices and evidence relating to health science in today’s world. Develop an understanding of the professional and ethical behaviours required in health care. Discover how to use industry-relevant technologies to build a successful career. This diploma will prepare you for further study in the health care sector.

Over 8 months, you’ll study content that is similar to a bachelor degree, but in smaller class sizes – so you'll have more one-on-one time with your teachers. When you finish your UniLink diploma, you can move straight into a Bachelor of Health Science at Swinburne, adding no additional time or money to your studies.
