Graduate Certificate

(Health and Social Wellbeing)

The Graduate Certificate in Health and Social Wellbeing offers a holistic perspective on wellness which is delivered online using mindful and contemplative approaches to learning.

An important element of education at Nan Tien Institute (NTI) is to embody self-care within the process of learning how to care for the health and social needs of others. This approach is essential to successfully addressing the inherent risks of burnout and fatigue when caring for others. The embodied, holistic and contemplative online learning foundations at NTI are unique within postgraduate education.
