Qualify for a professional position in accounting, economics, finance, marketing or management and apply your commercial skills to the management of health institutions and practices.

The health science component allows you to choose your major from three different scientific disciplines: Public Health, Rehabilitation Counselling, or Human Physiology and Anatomy.

The commerce component is designed to develop responsible, engaged, innovative, work-ready graduates by providing you with opportunities to talk and work with business. It comprises an eight-subject common core and an eight-subject primary major, chosen from five key business disciplines: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management and Marketing.

The common core, which extends through all three years of the degree, is designed to offer you a broad introduction to business disciplines. You'll apply your disciplinary knowledge, research, analytical and problem solving skills to resolving social, environmental and business problems and opportunities. You'll also have the opportunity to talk with business and community leaders and apply their knowledge and skills in a professional working environment.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.

Advanced Standing - Credit for prior study

Advanced Standing is the recognition of previous study or learning that can be counted towards a qualification. This can reduce the number of subjects required to complete your course. The amount of credit received depends on the level and relevance of your previous tertiary study and the number of subjects completed. The University will designate courses where there is only admission into Year 1 of the course. In these cases, there is limited advanced standing. More information
