EXCITING NEWS! - and a little disappointment

In March 2014, Tabor Adelaide (now Tabor College of Higher Education) was advised by the Australian Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) that a Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma in International Health and Development had been fully accredited for 7 years. A Foundations subject is now offered online in both Semester 2 and the summer semester (10 weeks from late November) with an on-site intensive covering Public Health and Clinical Care for two weeks in January. This will cover 3 of the 4 subjects required for the Graduate Certificate. The Graduate Diploma will require an additional 4 subjects including the Intermed overseas Practicum. Intermed has a Licence Agreement with Tabor to deliver this program.

Students may also decide to audit the course and Practicum with no accreditation and reduced fees – the original Intermed summer school. In summary, Intermed is offering the same content, delivered by the same team of highly experienced and knowledgeable lecturers.

Immediately following the 2-week intensive in January, Intermed will continue to offer the optional 3rd week of more practically focused sessions, which is highly recommended for those intending to go on the Practicum. This 3rd week is currently not part of the accredited program and will be managed by Intermed. For more details see: Optional 3rd week

And the disappointment…. The January 2017 summer intensive has been postponed to January 2018 due to low enrolments. We think that busy health professionals are finding it more difficult to get leave in January to attend an intensive course. This was one of the main reasons for adding an online Foundations component and reducing the core intensive to 2 weeks.

For more details of the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma, including application for credit or audit visit the Tabor website.
