Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy)

 

If you’re looking for a career that combines nutrition science with human health, our Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) opens up some riveting career possibilities. Setting the standard in Naturopathy studies, we combine the theory with sensational hands-on experience, so you’re ready to work as soon as you graduate.

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine that focuses on treating the underlying causes of disease by assessing and treating the patient as a whole. It aims to restore vitality by supporting and stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms.

What you’ll learn

Approved by the national Australian accreditation body TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency), this four year degree is the highest level of Naturopathy training available in Australia today. Within this course, we apply a modern scientific approach alongside naturopathic principles - including the healing power of nature - to recognise the body’s capacity to overcome disease.
You’ll be looking deeply into the core areas of nutritional and dietary therapy, western herbal medicine, homeopathy, flower essences, iridology and naturopathic diagnostic techniques. You’ll also learn the biological and social sciences that all healthcare professionals must understand.

Everyone goes to work!

That’s right! We believe there’s no greater teacher than experience. Under the guidance of our expert practitioners, you’ll finesse your skills with real public patients in our THINK Wellness Centre. By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and experience needed to start successfully practicing in the community.
