Course highlights

Whether this is your first degree or you're looking to upgrade your skills or change careers, the Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science will prepare you for a wide range of health settings.

Gain a wide range of skills and knowledge

From rehabilitation and human development to extensive knowledge of anatomy and how the body functions, CSU's health and rehabilitation science course covers a wide range of subject matter. You'll learn how to design and deliver a health education or community development program, as well as gain a strong understanding of Indigenous Australian health and wellbeing issues.

Practical, hands-on learning

Take your learning to the next level with practical community workplace experiences and CSU's extensive allied health facilities, which include anatomy and movement laboratories, a musculoskeletal skills assessment space, and an on-campus clinic for you to hone your examination and patient care skills.

Your degree, your way

Choose full-time, part-time or online study options to match your work and lifestyle commitments. When you study online you'll participate in residential schools, where you'll meet your classmates and lecturers face-to-face, and access CSU's outstanding allied health facilities. You can choose one of five specialisations; exercise science, gerontology, nutrition, or public health. There are two early exit points for the Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science – the Diploma in Health and Rehabilitation Science (eight subjects, 64 subject points) and the Associate Degree in Health and Rehabilitation Science (16 subjects, 128 subject points).

A foundation for further study

CSU's health and rehabilitation course also provides a pathway to vocational health study programs, particularly allied health courses such as occupational therapy, physiotherapy, podiatric medicine and speech and language pathology. You can apply for course transfer at any time during your study and approval is based on academic merit. After graduation, you'll be well-placed to continue study in a Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology, Master of Speech Pathology and other postgraduate courses in allied health, public health and health promotion.

The course has no accreditation with any professional organisation.

The course has no accreditation with any professional organisation.

You may have opportunities to gain practical experience from the first year of your course using on campus facilities and working with community organisations.

To ensure you are experienced using equipment and techniques found in the workplace, our facilities include excellent laboratories and a specialised skills development centre.

Please note that the following subjects have a Workplace Learning component:

HIP100 Introduction to Health and RehabilitationHIP301 Complex Cases in Rehabilitation

Residential schools are a great way to practise what you are learning in a hands-on environment, and to meet your lecturers and classmates.

Some online courses include a residential school, where you will attend a CSU campus during certain sessions throughout your course.

Distance education students will need to attend residential schools to develop the required clinical skills. These residential schools are scheduled during the breaks in Session 1 and Session 2, and details will be provided in your subject outlines. Students must complete all compulsory practical components and complete the mid-session or practical examinations where applicable.

The following subjects may have a residential school component for distance education students:

BMS161 Health and the Human body: cells, immunity and musculoskeletal system
BMS171 Introduction to Functional Human Anatomy
BMS172 Functional Anatomy of the Vertebral Column, Pelvic Girdle and Lower Limb
BMS256 Exercise Science for Health Practice
BMS271 Functional Anatomy of the Head, Neck, Pectoral Girdle and Upper Limb
EHR211 Functional Anatomy & Human Performance
EHR214 Skill Acquisition
EHR218 Biomechanics
EHR221 Exercise for Health & Fitness

From the early stages of your degree, you can apply for a range of international programs through CSU Global. You could take a session or two on exchange at one of CSU’s partner institutions across the world, go on a study tour during the holidays, or complete some of your practical placements in an unique location.

Are you after a unique CSU study experience? By participating in a CSU Global international study program you can gain a new perspective on where your degree can take you, and even complete your degree that little bit faster. CSU Global has many options available to fit with your course, interests and study needs.

Subjects

For each 8 point subject you are enrolled in, you should expect to spend 10 to 12 hours per week working on assignments and assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, and attending lectures, residential schools, or examinations.

If you are studying four subjects per session, this is equivalent to a full-time job. The workload for some subjects may vary as a result of approved course design.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on tuition and other fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.
