The College of Health offers an exciting, innovative environment for your studies. Our high-quality teaching and research programmes will prepare you for a career where you can improve people’s lives by achieving better health outcomes.
Your career prospects are excellent.
The health and social sector is the largest in New Zealand, and demand for healthcare workers is rising across the world. New Zealand isn’t producing enough graduates – 42% of our health workforce was trained overseas. College of Health graduates will be well-prepared to address and help solve the health issues of the 21st century.
Our health-related fields include environmental health, occupational safety and health, nutrition and dietetics, sport and exercise, social work, nursing, public health, medical laboratory science, physiology, food technology and more.
If you’re new to university, an undergraduate programme is where you begin your academic journey. It takes about three to four years of study. Once you've earned your undergraduate degree, you can study for a postgraduate degree. This is a higher qualification, and includes master degrees and, ultimately, PhDs.
