The Bachelor of Health Science is a flexible and innovative degree that equips graduates with qualifications to help make a difference across diverse settings of health care provision.

The course is characterised by a strong emphasis on the social model of health, which can be combined with science content such as pharmacology or data analytics and information management. Students develop knowledge within a framework that can be tailored to suit their interests and needs. Some students may focus on learning how to use and interpret data to drive innovation and improvement in health systems. Alternatively, students may develop their knowledge of global health and international health priorities in order to contribute to overseas health initiatives and aid organisations. Other students may elect to focus on pharmacology, which can transition them to a degree in pharmacy and a career as a community, clinical or industrial pharmacist. Students who complete this course with the required electives and grade point average also meet current entry criteria for the Master of Physiotherapy (C04306).

Career options include positions across a broad range of areas in the health care sector including health promotion, advocacy, health education, e-health, health data and information management systems, planning and policy, project management and evaluation, community development, and research and consultancy across both public and private health sectors. Examples of workplaces include refugee health agencies, drug and alcohol agencies, youth networks, humanitarian organisations, Aboriginal health organisations, public or private hospitals, health research agencies, government and non-government health organisations, and aid organisations.

The UTS Experience


“Throughout the degree we completed work experience alongside registered nurses and these ranged from 1 to 6 weeks in length.

It was a great way to understand a nurses role on the ward, how a hospital runs and to practice anything from taking blood pressure to administering medication.

I learned invaluable hints and tips from other nurses.”
