Endeavour College of Natural Health is a private education institution located in multiple campuses across Australia, specialising in alternative medicine.

History[edit]

Endeavour College of Natural Medicine was established in 1975, originally under the name Australian College of Natural Medicine. The College offers Bachelor of Health Science degrees in a range of complementary medicine modalities such as Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Myotherapy, and Homeopathy, and also offers a conventional Bachelor of Health Science degree in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetic Medicine.[1]

Vocational education courses in various alternative modalities are also provided by the college, ranging from the certificate level to advanced diplomas.

Endeavour operates several Australian campuses in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.[2]

In 2010, an audit by the Australian Universities Quality Agency reported that "students expressed the view that the college does not take sufficient responsibility for the student experience" and that the college "has a number of cultural challenges which it must overcome and these go to the core of how the college is operating as a higher education provider", noting a lack of managerial oversight and a need for clearer oversight of decision-making.[3]

In 2015, the college was sold by its parent company Vocation to Study Group International for AUS$75 million.[4]
