This programme is a great opportunity to gain advanced knowledge of complex health care systems and develop the theoretical and practical skills you need to become a leader in your workplace, with the programme delivered flexibly to fit around work commitments.

Whether you want to study something new, enhance your career prospects with a qualification or get up to date with new developments in your industry, postgraduate study in health can help you achieve your goals.

You can gain a general overview by studying without a specialisation or pursue a particular field—there are seven areas of professional focus for you to choose from.

If you’re studying full-time, you can expect a workload of 40 hours of study time a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing one course per trimester will need to allocate approximately 20 hours of study a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.
