Study Health Sciences: A growing population demands inspirational, dedicated and professionally educated health practitioners.

AUT's Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences is one of New Zealand's largest and most diverse health science education providers - offering students a stimulating educational community. With global workforce shortages in the health sector and an increase in the popularity of health courses in New Zealand, it's very competitive for those wanting to study towards a career as a health professional. We offer a wide range of study options across our Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes, and all are supported by our research institutes.
