How flexible learning works

I really want to do Physiotherapy but I'm not sure if I will achieve the ATAR to get into the course.

Ava is doing Year 12 and is very keen to get into the new Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Physiotherapy Practice double degree program. She knows the ATAR for this course could be high. When she makes her VTAC course selection, she lists the physiotherapy course as her first preference and then the Bachelor of Health Sciences knowing that the ATAR of this course is likely to be more achievable.

VCE results come out and Ava does not receive an offer from physiotherapy as the cut-off is too high, but she does receive an offer for the Bachelor of Health Sciences. She does the first year of Bachelor of Health Sciences and achieves an excellent grade point average. She applies for transfer into the Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Physiotherapy Practice program and is accepted. Ava commences in the second year of the physiotherapy double degree program and receives full credit for her first year of study.

I'm interested in Health Information Management, Podiatry and Speech Pathology – I just don't know which one to choose.

Charlie is interested in a number of health-related courses and is unsure of which one to do at the end of Year 12. He achieves an excellent ATAR result and gets into his first choice, the Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Speech Pathology double degree program. The first year of the course has a common first year with two other courses he was considering.

During the core first year, Charlie learns more about the other health professions and decides that he would like to study health information management. He applies for a transfer to the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Medical Classification)/Bachelor of Health Information Management. His application is successful and he moves straight into second year.
