Health sciences

Ranked first in New Zealand and 92nd 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.
