Diploma of Health Science

SAIBT is an excellent starting place when entering university as they teach you the necessary information that will prepare you and push you in the right direction. I’ve found SAIBT to be really helpful, giving me the opportunity to complete the first year of my degree in a diploma and enter straight into second year my Health Science degree.
