Study the AUT Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science in Midwifery and develop advanced knowledge and critical analysis skills in midwifery in as little as one year.
The midwifery papers focus on woman- and family-centered education that is applied and practice orientated, and encourage midwives to critically analyse and develop midwifery practice and expertise. You can choose to take online papers that are only seven weeks long, so you can complete your study while working.
The programme can prepare you for further study at master’s level. It's a great postgraduate study option if you have been out of study for some time, or are unsure if postgraduate study is for you.
This is part of the Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science.
You need a total of 120 points to complete the Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science in Midwifery qualification.

Practice as a health professional in New Zealand is governed by legislation and a number of ‘Responsible Authorities’ (such as the 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.
