Your degree will include placements in a range of health services, including hospitals, specialist clinics and private practices around Australia. These clinical experiences will ensure you're job-ready when you graduate.

In your final year you'll complete either a research or industry-based project – an opportunity to set yourself up for either further study or the next step of your career.
