Human Services FAQ's
Many students have previously been accepted into university using their completed Certificate III Individual Support as a means of entry.

Compulsory industry appropriate vaccines are required for all staff working in aged care facilities (this includes School-based Trainees and Workplace Learning students). If a student completing the Human Services course is unable to receive these required vaccines due to a medical contraindication, they will need to provide evidence from their doctor or treating specialist.
