How do I get an extension on my assessment?
A single online request process for assignment extensions will be in place for semester 1, 2016. If you don’t hand in your assignment by the due date, it will not be marked and you will receive a grade of 1 or 0%. If special circumstances will prevent you from handing the assignment on time you can apply for an extension.
If you have not heard back about your application by the time the assignment is due, you should submit the work you have completed and attach a copy of your extension request receipt.
You will find out the outcome of your application within five working days. If your application is approved you will be advised on the new due date. You should attach this approval notice to your assignment when it is submitted.
If your circumstances prevent you applying for an extension by the due date contact your faculty as soon as possible to discuss what options may be available to you. Alternatively you can contact your QUT Guild Wingman and he can contact your faculty for you.

The Master of Health Management (MHM) program is the oldest and largest health management program in Australia. For 60 years the MHM has provided students with the essential knowledge, skills and attributes required to respond to the constantly changing challenges faced by health managers and leaders.
The Health Management program provides students with the essential knowledge, skills and attributes required to undertake challenging senior managerial roles in health services either in Australia or internationally. A key focus of the program is promoting both current and future leaders who are skilled in strategic planning, quality and safety improvement and monitoring, and policy making within a wide variety of contexts. These include the hospital and community healthcare services, aged care services, Ministries and Departments of Health, Government and Non-Government and voluntary organisations, primary care and general practice, in both public and private sectors.
The objective of the Master of Health Management (MHM) program is to develop work-ready managers who can provide effective leadership on health service issues, teams and systems. The MHM program ensures that students have a strong grounding in the principles underpinning health systems and services, strategic planning, change management, financial management and health economics, evidence informed decision and policy-making, clinical governance and risk management, and innovation and improvement strategies.
Mode of Delivery
The MHM program can be undertaken either full-time or part-time. Courses are offered internally on campus with face-to-face teaching, or externally by distance mode using online teaching.

The School also runs an optional Residential Week on campus where workshops are held for courses before the official commencement of semester. There are two residential weeks, in late February and July.
