Allied health

Health practitioners help us live life to the fullest. They’re the ones who get us back on the pitch after a sporting injury, help us overcome that stutter and teach us to walk again after an accident. They also work hard in the background, preventing disease, influencing governments and keeping whole communities safer, happier and healthier.

A world of wellbeing is a world of well beings

Meet our people

Henry Jones
Physiotherapy student

“I love how hands-on all of my subjects are. The teachers make sure there are lots of practical classes to ensure we get plenty of time to practise all of the manual techniques we’re learning, and there’s always a staff member around to give us tips and help out.

Physio is a career where you get the chance to help people get moving and functioning again. I hope to make an impact by assisting people to achieve their sporting goals and to extend their active life for as long as they possibly can.”
