Study health sciences with us and we’ll help you develop the skills to meet the changing needs of global healthcare. AUT is New Zealand’s largest and most diverse health education provider.
Our population is growing and we’re living longer, increasing the need for dedicated and inspirational healthcare graduates. AUT's health sciences degree is developed with input from district health boards and leading health organisations. You can specialise in a specific health discipline or become a health professional in a non-clinical role.
You learn from staff who are leaders in their field and have a genuine desire to see you succeed. This means you’ll be well prepared for your career in the health sector, no matter where you go.
Consider starting with our Certificate in Sport and Recreation, which includes foundation health papers and can prepare you for further study in health sciences.
