Postgraduate coursework programs

The School of Allied Health offers postgraduate programs in mental health for allied health professionals as well as programs in rehabilitation for occupational therapists, physiotherapists (gerontological and neurological streams are available) and speech pathologists. In 2022 we launched two new postgraduate programs: one for graduate physiotherapists wanting to become sports and exercise physiotherapists, and a double degree for those wanting to work in high performance sports. Both these courses will provide the foundation for specialty recognition for physiotherapists to apply for APA Titled Membership in Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy.

*Commonwealth supported places (CSPs) are available for these courses.
