The Bachelor of Health Science (BHSc) standard pathway provides you with an in-depth understanding of general healthcare and the flexibility to study health papers of your choice. This degree doesn't have a practice major or clinical component - if you wish to specialise in one of our health disciplines (eg, podiatry, nursing, physiotherapy etc), you must apply for these directly as the Bachelor of Health Science standard pathway does not lead to these qualifications.

An increasingly diverse population with changing health needs requires an equally diverse, dedicated and adaptable health workforce. If you want a career in health but are unsure what you’d like to specialise in, the Bachelor of Health Science with no practice major (standard pathway) provides you with interdisciplinary and interprofessional skills for a wide range of nonclinical roles in the health and disability sector. These roles, which do not always involve direct contact with patients, include leadership and management, information and planning, education, advocacy and promotion.
