Health sciences

Ranked in the top 101-125 in the world for clinical, pre-clinical and health subjects by Times Higher Education, AUT is one of the country's biggest health science education providers. We draw on research and industry practice to prepare you for a rewarding career in a growing sector – and our graduates are in demand worldwide.

When you study here you’ll get experience working with real people through industry work placements. You’ll also work in our health clinics on campus, which offer services to the public like physiotherapy, oral health, podiatry and more.

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 certificate or diploma will give you an introduction to your chosen subject and can prepare you for further study.

Research in health sciences

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across health sciences.
