The Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science at CSU develops the knowledge and skills to work in a range of health care settings.
During the Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science, you will complete subjects in areas such as anatomy, exercise science, human development and sociology, and graduate with the ability to develop and run health education and community programs.
This integrated program enables you to graduate with a range of qualifications, including Certificate IV in Massage Therapy Practice and the Diploma of Remedial Massage from TAFE NSW North Coast Institute, and the Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science from CSU, in four years of study.
You will complete TAFE and University subjects in the first two years of full-time study, and then study only CSU subjects in the third and fourth years. The fourth year is offered by part-time study only, providing you more flexibility to combine study with work or family commitments.
You will study the TAFE components of the course on campus at North Coast TAFE, and the CSU subjects through CSU's Port Macquarie Campus. As you will be enrolled at both institutions, you will have access to all the facilities, services and resources offered at both North Coast Institute and CSU.
The Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science at Port Macquarie is delivered by mixed mode. The TAFE component and many of the CSU subjects are delivered on campus, but some CSU subjects are offered by distance education only.
TAFE-specific scholarships are available for students in this course.
If you have already completed the Diploma of Remedial Massage, consider the Bachelor of Health and Rehabilitation Science articulated pathway program.

As a leading distance education provider, CSU has a well-developed network of online resources and communication tools to support students throughout their studies. Distance education also offers you the flexibility of studying at your own pace, and in your own time. Each subject you study will have its own subject site in CSU's integrated online system, CSU Interact, and you will be able to communicate with other students and teaching staff using resources such as forums and the Online Meeting tool.
To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 256 points.
For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.
Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.
Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).
Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject outlines and in course materials.
