In terms of the nutritional aspect, the course was poor in this area. We had one nutrition topic a semester, the rest was general science courses (I.e chemistry, biology, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology). There was no placement so it was difficult to say you were competant going out into the workforce. The course is split into 2 streams (I.e food science and nutrition) and I think majority of the course is more food science based more than anything. A lot of those who did the food science stream found no difficulty getting jobs after. I know that most of the people who did the nutrition side either studied something different the following year or went on and did dietetics (at flinders seeing as they cancelled the dietetics course the year I graduated - 2015). If you want a general background of nutrition and food science then the course may be something for you. If you want a career in nutrition I would look for a more in-depth practical based course!

A course designed for bridging eg. if you want to get into physiotherapy or occupational therapy when current qualifications are not satisfactory. Learning content suited the purpose of degree.

Further support with obtaining a job and more advocacy for graduation positions would have made the course better

Health science was a really good course. I am now doing occupational therapy but without health science I would not have gained the knowledge I needed to do occupational therapy comfortably.

Thé course was good and covered what was required for the bachelor of health science. It was however very vague in parts and did not delve deep enough into certain areas that I would have liked. It gives you a taste for thé health field but it did not allow me to become an expert in one area due to its nature that was in my opinion, all over the place.
