Staircasing options from the Postgraduate Certificate in Health Science or Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science are also available.

You can also complete the standard Master of Health Practice (non-endorsed).
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.
You select papers and areas of practice that reflect your needs and interests. You need a total of 180 points to complete the Master of Health Practice.
