Master of Adolescent Health & Wellbeing
This multi-disciplinary course explores the developmental, psychological, social and environmental issues that impact on adolescent health and wellbeing. The course covers the evidence base for effective programs and practice in the areas where young people live, learn and socialise, and in the health-care sector where young people seek support. The minor thesis component in the final year provides the opportunity to undertake a small research project and write up under the guidance of a supervisor.
The knowledge and skills gained will enhance the practice of a diverse range of health and education professionals such as nurses, social workers, teachers, youth workers, police officers, so that they can better engage with young people and work more effectively towards improving their health and wellbeing outcomes.

A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
