Endeavour College of Natural Health was established in 1975, originally under the name Australian College of Natural Medicine. This remains the legal entity. The College is a ‘dual sector’ private education provider, meaning it offers higher education and vocational education and training (VET) courses.
In higher education, Endeavour offers Bachelor of Health Science degrees in a range of complementary medicine modalities and pseudosciences such as Naturopathy, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, and also offers a conventional Bachelor of Health Science degree in Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine. The College also offers a higher education Diploma of Health Science for those looking to learn more about the complementary medicine fields prior to stepping into a degree.
VET courses in various alternative modalities are also provided by the College, ranging from the certificate level to diplomas.
In 2015, the college was sold by its parent company Vocation to Study Group International for AUS$75 million. In 2018, Study Group International sold off its most valuable asset, Endeavour, to Allegro Funds at a staggering loss in order to repay significant government debts. Allegro Funds operating as Education Bidco remains the private equity owner.
