The Bachelor of Community Health, offered by UniSA Online, prepares students for rewarding careers in community health, policy and wellbeing. You'll expand your passion for wellness and develop fundamental knowledge that will help you make a difference in the community.
Students begin by developing a solid foundation of knowledge in key areas such as human biology, psychology, mental health and cultural safety, in both national and international settings. You'll then gain non-clinical community health skills, such as planning, development, implementation and evaluation of community health programs; working with diverse clients; and keeping up-to-date with the changing regulations and technologies.
Students will have the option of specialising in focus areas such as mental health, aged care and disability, and will explore strategies to address the health challenges that diverse communities may face.
The degree combines theoretical knowledge with real-world experience, incorporating expertise from world-class staff as well as industry-focused projects and assessments.
Applicants are required to meet one of the following criteria with a competitive result:

If you are an Australian citizen, you may be eligible to receive a government HECS-HELP loan, meaning you can defer payment of your fees.
Alternatively, you can pay your degree fees upfront.
This course can be paid for through the HECS-HELP government loan scheme. If you are an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa, you may not need to pay upfront.
Instead, the Australian government will pay your course fees directly to the provider on your behalf. You'll begin repaying your loan through the tax system once you start earning more than the minimum threshold of $55,874 (2017-18 income year).
