Course format

Return to Health is located in Tallebudgera Valley, in the Southern Gold Coast. However, students may enrol from anywhere in Australia.* Return to Health understands that learning need not be limited to a formal classroom setting to be effective. Classroom-teaching is kept to a minimum, to ensure effective outcomes for students from all areas and with varying obligations. Classroom-based teaching is delivered both in-person for local students, and via live Skype video calls for interstate students.

* Courses are not formatted for distance study.

Timetable

Modules are timetabled on a revolving bi-monthly timetable. This allows you to enrol during multiple times in the year. Intake is in March, May, June, August and October of each calendar year. Classes require you to attend a minimum of 1 day per module. You take each of our modules over a minimum period of one month, and maximum of three months. We hold classes from Monday to Friday, with specific days of attendance dependent on the Course you are undertaking. Times for tuition days are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Focused learning

Whilst we condense formal teaching, contact time with your teacher is frequently available due to Return to Health’s small classroom sizes. This means that more focused and effective learning can be achieved with you on a one-on-one basis. The style of learning at Return to Health favours awareness and growth on all levels, including spiritual and emotional growth. Therefore, education is individualised, and responsive to your needs.

Intensive reading and research

This further echoes the holistic learning process which Return to Health adheres to.

Assessment

We assess the progress of our students on a module-by-module basis. Students have to submit and successfully pass each Module Assignment before progressing to the subsequent module. Each assignment is structured to provide you with an opportunity to build your own understanding of the module taught in class through further self-study and research. You then demonstrate your understanding by completing the module assignment in written form.
