Opening soon: Warrnambool Health Precinct

This exciting new initiative, due to open in 2025, is being developed at Deakin’s Warrnambool campus will invigorate the teaching offerings in the region. With new state-of-the-art teaching facilities – including simulation laboratory spaces, specialist learning spaces, and shared health discipline facilities – the precinct will create an integrated environment for students to engage and learn.

I chose occupational therapy due to an interest in helping other people improve their function and wellbeing. It is very rewarding when you see client progress. Deakin is a great place to study, with a diverse amount of study options.
