South West residents will be able to study for a Health Science degree in the region they live from next year.
Students will be able to study for a Bachelor of Health Science course majoring in Nutrition, Addiction Studies, Health Promotion or Occupational Safety and Health at Edith Cowan University’s South West Campus from 2018.
The course will be offered in a mixed-mode delivery model, including on campus and online delivery, with support provided by local experienced staff.
Course Coordinator Jill Darby, from Edith Cowan University's School of Health and Medical Sciences, said the new hub would allow students to study where they lived, rather than having to move to Perth.
"We are really excited to support prospective students to study Health Sciences in the South West and contribute to increased capacity among the local health workforce."
As part of the new offerings, a new Health Science Hub will be established on ECU’s South West Campus next year.
The Hub, which will be coordinated by Dr Stephanie Godrich will give students a space to study, connect with peers and engage with guest speakers from local industry.
The Bachelor of Health Science (Health Promotion) course is accredited by the International Union of Health Promotion and Education. The Bachelor of Health Science (Occupational Safety and Health) course is accredited by the Australian OHS Education Accreditation Board as well as in the UK by the Institute of Occ Safety and Health.
The 16 unit Environmental Health major is accredited by Environmental Health Australia, however, this course will require some on campus attendance in Joondalup and or units completed on-line.
