Information for students

The Graduate School of Health specialises in graduate-entry masters programs in clinical psychology, orthoptics, pharmacy and physiotherapy.

Our key objective is to prepare students to work as health professionals, and in most courses students graduate with a professional registration from the relevant authorising body.

Practical learning, high-impact research and professional partnerships are the foundational pillars which drive the School into the future.

The Australian health sector is changing, with emerging technologies, an ageing population and increased patient demand for improved health services. The Graduate School of Health prides itself on delivering courses and undertaking research that responds to these contemporary and future healthcare issues. All our degrees have been developed in collaboration with industry advisory boards, making them responsive to future employer needs.

Students learn from experienced, internationally recognised academics and many clinical practitioner teachers. The School takes a unique approach to teaching; real-world examples and focused case studies foster students' active learning skills and creative thinking. Graduates are equipped to solve complex clinical problems, lead with confidence and manage the multi-faceted challenges faced by health care professions.

Progression rules

Postgraduate students may be excluded from further study at the University due to one or more of the following reasons.

  • If a student fails to meet the minimum rate of progress by failing more than 50 percent of the total number of enrolled credit points from the commencement of the course.
  • If a student exceeds the maximum time allowed for completion of the course (UTS Rule 10.5). The maximum time that can be taken to complete a postgraduate coursework degree is three years, unless an exception has been approved by the Head, Graduate School of Health.
  • If a student fails a subject for the second time in a course offered by the Graduate School of Health (UTS Rule 10.6.1(2)), they are not permitted to enrol in that subject for a third time. If the subject is a core subject, and the student is refused permission for a third attempt, the student is excluded from the course for at least one academic year (UTS Rule 10.6.1). Students may apply for re-admission to the course through the standard admission process at the end of the one year exclusion period but an offer is not guaranteed.

Facilities

In line with its practice-based ethos, the School is home to state-of-the-art facilities with purpose-built wet and dry laboratories and simulated environments to enhance students' learning experiences.

The Graduate School of Health is mainly housed in the new Building 7 on Thomas St. Featuring a mix of specialist and collaborative teaching facilities, the building has transformed the way students learn, including health consulting rooms and Australia's first 'Super Lab' with capacity for 200 students. World-class research facilities increase the capacity for ground-breaking research produced across disciplines.
