Study Programs & Centres


We've got something special to offer you

We are a large multi-campus school specialising in nursing, laboratory medicine, allied health sciences and rural health. Students study with us across campuses in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie in Tasmania and in Rozelle and Darlinghurst in New South Wales. We also have a large online student-base from across Australia and we are the largest provider of nursing postgraduate education in the country.

Clinical learning

Strong partnerships and practice opportunities

As a student, you will work with experienced industry partners including hospitals, local health districts and aged care facilities – particularly those in Tasmania and Sydney, giving you the hands-on practice that employers value and actively look for in graduates.
