The beginning of a new year is always a great time to reflect on what you want out of life. Are you in a career that ignites your passion and makes you excited to leap out of bed every morning? If not, what can you do to make that happen? For some people, that may involve just slightly shaking up what you’re already doing. For others, it could mean an entire career change!

If your passion happens to be health and wellbeing, great! It’s a very exciting world and there are plenty of fantastic job opportunities out there. But it’s also a highly competitive industry, as there are so many wonderful people who want to help others become the best possible versions of themselves. Luckily, there is a way you can get an edge over the competition and make your dream a reality.

With graduates like Jessica Sepel and The Brown Paper Bag’s Jacqueline Alwill, the Australasian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT) is a leading educator in health and wellness. ACNT’s Diploma and Bachelor of Health Science is the perfect way to build your knowledge and kick-start your career.

What can you study?

With the Bachelor of Health Science, you can specialise in Nutritional Medicine, Naturopathy or Western Herbal Medicine. So whatever your area of interest, there’s something for everybody. Not quite sure what you want to do? No problem! The Diploma of Health Science is the first year of the Bachelor, so it’s the perfect way to get a feel for what you’re interested in.

How does it work?

One of the best things about ACNT’s courses is how flexible they are. So if you’re working full-time or don’t live near one of the campuses, you can still study with ACNT. There are currently three campuses (in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) where you can study either full-time or part-time. Then, there’s the option to complete your course online. That way, you can fit the course around your other commitments, but still, connect with lecturers and peers via the online community. If you want the best of both worlds you can even do blended study – where you complete some of the course online and some face-to-face!

What can I do with it?

Thanks to the highly experienced teachers, industry placement and hands-on approach to learning, you’ll be job-ready by the time you graduate. Your career opportunities will include Nutritionist, Naturopath, Western Herbal Medicine Practitioner, Product Developer, Researcher, Practitioner Consultant, Health Writer and more!

Sounds great! How do I apply?

If you’re ready to jump into the health career of your dreams, it takes just a few minutes to apply. Good luck and hey, maybe we’ll even see you as a featured nutritionist on Sporteluxe in a few years time!
