As told by the university

Overview

La Trobe University’s Health Sciences provides an opportunity for students to gain in-depth knowledge in various fields including medical research, rehabilitation counselling and health promotion. Being one of Australia's pioneering universities for almost 50 years, La Trobe has established strong industry links and partnerships to ensure students’ clinical placements in some of Victoria's finest hospitals and healthcare centres.

This allows students to pursue their education through hands-on experience. They will also have the opportunity to take up placements in a range of relevant workplaces from hospital settings to community facilities and regional health organisations.

By pursuing this field, students will learn about the role of health professionals and factors that influence health both locally and around the world. They will also be able to choose one or two majors in their second year.

Students are trained by highly qualified academic staff with close links to professional, government and corporate organisations, including the Australian Sports Commission, Cancer Council of Victoria, VicHealth and the AFL Players Association. Students might also choose to explore health sciences away from Australia through study abroad opportunities in destinations including the US and Mexico, Europe and the UK, South East Asia and India.

Career Opportunities

Upon graduation, students can position themselves to take on roles in public health, health promotion, community or private health services, aged care, disability services, research, hospitals, rehabilitation counselling or athlete welfare and wellbeing.

Students may also choose to undertake Honours or postgraduate studies in fields including sport management, dietetics, rehabilitation counselling, exercise physiology, occupational health and safety, ergonomics, prosthetics and orthotics, and physiotherapy.

Semester Exchange

Students can choose to go on semester exchange overseas programmes during their studies. They can travel and get credit towards their La Trobe degrees with a semester or a year at an overseas university. There are a range of scholarships and grants to support their educations overseas.

The University has partnered with more than 150 universities in over 40 countries offering a wide range of programmes. Nearly all universities offer their courses in English.

My experience in Melbourne so far is so good in all aspects. About the study program it is completely a different experience than back in India at the same time i would say the Indian way of studies gave me a strong base for the study here. My program has been designed exellently to push into your mind the aspects of MBA practically rather than just studying volumes of books and forgetting the concepts after one vomits in the examination. The study pattern here is designed in such a way that one atleast carries a handful of knowledge at the end of the course. Being an MBA student without any work experience, i strongly reccomend people to think before taking MBA without work experience, those like me without work experience are definitely at a disadvantage for the course, cause one can understand the concepts clearly only if one practically goes through the process before studying, it also helps to carry the knowledge around in a better way... About the living it takes approximately around $500-$1000 per month... show less

Always select the cosultancies looking into thier history and thier past success rate. Go for the university you really want to and dont leave that to agenies choice. Have a good reserch on the University you are going to apply and its credit ratings. keep in mind you are going to do a huge investment. Accomodation s always a problem as far as melbourne s concerned.. University lodgings are expensive, but staying there for a month or two is advisable. always better to move away once you get to know about the city and places. Melbourne is not that expensive i should say, if you have a part time job.. and mind you getting your first job is always dificult.. all your luck... the life comes to settle after you start earning. You wont miss any indians here, a lot in melbourne.. you get alll the indian foods and groceries at every corner if the suburbs... always a sharing accomodation of 3 or 4 is good,that too away from city,so the expenses also gets minimised.. show less
