Course content

The Master of Mental Health provides systematic training designed to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to contemporary mental health practice. Candidates receive advanced training in a variety of evidence based interventions and the theoretical principles that underpin them. Teaching is provided by highly experienced practitioners and/or researchers, many of whom have national or international reputations for scholarship and/or professional practice. Students have the opportunity to undertake both structured and independent learning assignments and study in a flexible environment that respects concurrent professional commitments.

The mode of study of courses and location of offering varies depending on the field of study chosen. Please check the entry for the particular field of study that you wish to study for more information.

This is particularly important for international students as some courses are only offered externally and residential schools are required for some of these courses.

Fees and funding

Fees for International students

Indicative annual fees are calculated on the basis of two full-time semesters only. Actual annual fees may vary in accordance with your choices of majors and electives and whether you study in Summer Semester. Tuition fees are indexed each year. The indexation rate is fixed 18 months in advance of a particular academic year thereby allowing you to plan your finances ahead of time. The University's intent is that fee rate increases will be kept to a minimum and that indexation rates will remain stable wherever possible. Since 2007 the indexation rate has remained at or less than 4%.
