Summary

Naturopaths are experts in whole health and wellbeing, and provide evidence based natural health care that is effective, safe and meaningful to their clients. Through an in-depth understanding of human bioscience, emotional and social factors, and as prescribers of natural medicine, Naturopaths are able to help prevent disease, provide optimal health and wellbeing and relief of symptoms by treating the whole person and the root causes of disease.

Study Mode

Face-to-face on campus with selected subjects available online.

Online Learning

Students intending to study on a student visa are unable to enrol exclusively in online learning subjects in a course of study. International students on a student visa may only enrol in online learning subjects that comprise no more than 30% of the course.

Career Opportunities

Many naturopaths work independently in private practice, setting their own hours and developing and managing their own businesses.

Naturopaths in clinical practice can also choose to work in multidisciplinary clinics with other health care providers who share overhead costs, provide mutual support and cross refer patients or clients. While many naturopaths conduct a general practice, others may develop a particular area of interest such as women’s health, infertility, complex chronic diseases, cancer support, children’s health, autoimmune diseases, environmental medicine, men’s medicine, autism spectrum disorder, allergies or digestive disorders.

Naturopaths regularly appear in the media as subject matter experts, write articles for professional journals. Naturopaths also work in natural product companies formulating new products, conducting literature research, performing technical writing and providing product support.

Association Recognition

Graduates may apply for membership with the following associations:

  • Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA)
  • Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA)
  • Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS)
  • Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association (ANPA)
  • Australian Register of Naturopaths and Herbalists (ARONAH)

Professional associations vary as to the amount of online learning that they accept in a Bachelor degree. Their standards may change at any time and although Endeavour commits to keeping students informed of such changes, ultimately it is the student’s responsibility to keep abreast of these issues to ensure they meet the qualifications.
