Our Bachelor of Health Science leads to a wide range of rewarding jobs in the fast-growing health industry — or more specialised postgraduate study.

You’ll have access to cutting-edge, industry-relevant tech in our campus labs; prepping you for a career that relies on it. A major component of your studies will be a research-based project, which addresses a current industry challenge. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for units that will take the form of a real industry experience such as a career-focused placement or an internship. This allows you to build a professional network before you graduate.

During your degree, you’ll complete core units across multiple fields of health science to explore contemporary challenges and their possible interventions along with a major based on your interest and career aspirations. This could lead to postgraduate studies at Swinburne in physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy or counselling.
