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.
You select courses and areas of practice that reflect your needs and interests. You need a total of 180 points to complete the Master of Health Practice.
