AUT encourages early application. Places are limited. This qualification will remain open until all places have been filled.
Below is a summary only. For a comprehensive overview of this qualification, please refer to the Academic Calendar.
In your first year, you develop an in-depth understanding of general health care and have an opportunity to learn alongside other health science students. In Semester 1 you complete four core papers. You will then be introduced to the available papers in Semester 2.
Papers (core or compulsory)
HEAL504 Psychology and Lifespan Development
HEAL505 Human Anatomy and Physiology I
HEAL506 Knowledge, Enquiry and Communication
HEAL507 Health and Environment OR MAOH501 Māori Health, Development and Environment
Papers for the following years of study will depend on your choice of major/degree or desired papers if taking the BHSc standard pathway. See the BHSc major/degree pages for an outline of each qualification.
Some of our degree majors and specialisations provide you with industry placements or clinical placements. Industry and clinical placements expose you to different types of organisations, giving you valuable hands on experience. It is also a critical part of your study time at AUT as it allows you to complete the necessary hours to apply for registration once you graduate.
You can complete the BHSc in two major areas of study, such as health promotion and psychology.
