Health sciences

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

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.
