Course Updates: Health Science Courses

Torrens University Australia (TUA), which is also part of the Laureate International Universities network here in Australia, will soon launch four new Health Science courses.

These will also be delivered at our colleges ACNT (Sydney and Brisbane) and SSNT (Melbourne) with Torrens University Australia as the provider.

Introducing the new courses:

  • Diploma of Health Science - Torrens University Australia
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) – Torrens University Australia
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Clinical Nutrition) - Torrens University Australia
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Western Herbal Medicine) – Torrens University Australia
What does this mean for me?

These new TUA courses will eventually replace the current courses:

  • Diploma of Health Science – THINK Education
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) – THINK Education
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine) – THINK Education
  • Bachelor of Health Science (Western Herbal Medicine) – THINK Education

This will mean that the four THINK courses will be going into teach out so we won’t be taking any further enrolments into these courses. 

However please be assured that there are no changes to your current enrolment.

Your current course will continue to be delivered until the final course completion date which will be the end of trimester 1, 2021 for Diploma students and the end of trimester 3, 2021 for Bachelor students.

If you are studying part-time, and worry that you won’t be finished your studies by the final teach out periods, please don’t be concerned. We have a number of pathway options available for you to ensure you can successfully complete your qualification and we will be in contact with you to explain these options.
