Faculty of Health

Undergraduate Study

MBBS Students Lab

The Faculty of Health is focussed on transforming healthcare. We achieve this through research outcomes that benefit the community and through delivering courses and education that are informed by our research. This means that, as a student in the Faculty of Health you will be learning contemporary healthcare and health science skills that are applicable to today’s health and workforce needs.

Undergraduate Courses

Undergraduate degrees are for students who have not previously studied at University or who are studying a particular discipline for the first time at University. Our degrees are two to five years in length, giving students a strong foundation in health sciences and in many cases, including Professional Experience Placement to ensure our graduates are work-ready.

We offer our Undergraduate degrees by distance or face-to-face at one of our campus locations. We have campuses in Sandy Bay, Hobart, Launceston and the Cradle Coast in Tasmania, as well as Rozelle and Darlinghurst in New South Wales.


On successful completion of an undergraduate degree or on high achievement in years 1 & 2 of an undergraduate degree, you will have the opportunity to undertake an Honours degree. An Honours degree represents elite academic performance and is recognised nationally and internationally. The program provides an advanced year of full-time (or equivalent part-time) specialised study in an area of interest, where you will be taught by your mentors.

Honours degrees are available as follows:
