Prepare yourself for a rewarding career in the growing health sector, and study one of our world-class health science programmes; ranked in the top 101-125 in the world for clinical, pre-clinical and health subjects by Times Higher Education.
As an AUT graduate you’ll be in high demand worldwide. We’re one of New Zealand's biggest health science education providers. Your studies include many opportunities for workplace experience, treating people in different health settings. You’ll also get practical experience in our health clinics on campus, which offer services to the public like physiotherapy, oral health, podiatry and more.
Undergraduate study in health sciences will give you a solid grounding in your chosen area.
Postgraduate study in health sciences will build on your knowledge and expertise in your area of interest.
Practice as a health professional in New Zealand is governed by legislation and a number of ‘Responsible Authorities’ (such as the NZ Psychologist Board, Physiotherapy Board and the Nursing Council who register practitioners). Overseas qualified health professionals who wish to practise in New Zealand should communicate directly with the relevant Responsible Authority. Qualifications recognised for professional registration at AUT are undergraduate; study at postgraduate level is not considered equivalent recognition for NZ Board certification.
A short course will develop your skills and knowledge in an area of personal or professional interest.
We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across health sciences.More about our research
