The Undergraduate Certificate in Aged Care Services is an ideal opportunity to build your knowledge if you are working in, or planning to work in the aged care sector.
Developed and delivered by the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre at the University of Tasmania, this course explores biological ageing of the body, the health challenges associated with ageing, and the provision of services to build capacity in areas of care navigation.
This course is a four-unit program, fully online, and available part-time starting in semester 1 2021.
Our assessment tasks will make use of case studies based on biological ageing, ageing in the community, ageing services provision and the aged care sector. So, if you don’t have significant industry experience you will still be able to contextualise your learning. There will be no direct, compulsory placements in industry as part of this course.
Details of course and individual unit fees for students commencing study in Semester 1 2021 may be found in the Course and Unit Handbook. Domestic students may apply for HECS-HELP and defer payment of HECS. Information about fees may be found during your application process and at this website and further advice about HECS-HELP loans is available here.
