The Coaching, Health and Physical Education department is part of sport and recreation at AUT.
Health, sport and physical activity remain at the heart of New Zealand's wellbeing. The study of health and physical education at AUT focuses on the integration of hauora, health promotion and the socio-ecological aspects that underpin the philosophy of health and physical education in New Zealand schools.
Undergraduate study in health, physical education and coaching will give you a solid grounding in this area.
We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across sport and recreation.More about our research
