Our pathways, your future

The Allied Health Expansion program is creating new opportunities to better support the Allied Health labour force needs in Tasmania.

We are:

  1. Making access to allied health education easier for Tasmanian, Australian and Overseas students
  2. Preparing graduates for current and future allied health practice with a focus on improving public health and contributing to system innovation and reform
  3. Preparing graduates for interprofessional practice in metropolitan, regional, rural and remote communities and professional practice across the health, education and disability sectors
  4. Supporting career and professional development opportunities for allied health professionals in Tasmania

New programs will include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Pathology
  • Exercise Physiology

Our commitment to supporting student entry into our programs:

Students will have the option to enter our allied health programs through either the Undergraduate - Postgraduate linked course pathway, or through a Postgraduate direct entry pathway.

Each allied health program will:

  • Dedicate places for Tasmanian and interstate students who are eligible for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP)
  • Dedicate places for overseas students, who will enrol as Full Fee Paying Onshore (FFPOS) students
  • Support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates to access and study
  • Support rural and remote background candidates to access and study
  • Enable students to study close to their Tasmanian hometown
