About the course

The Bachelor of Health is a three-year undergraduate degree that gives you expertise in health services, health policy and strategy, social health and population health in New Zealand and beyond. It will prepare you for a rewarding career contributing to the promotion of good health and wellbeing in our communities.

A feature of this degree is that it's cross-disciplinary, meaning you'll be encouraged to study and work with subject areas outside health.

Design your degree around your interests—choose from our wide range of courses and do a minor or major in another subject, or choose a conjoint degree and pursue two degrees at the same time.

Study through a range of blended learning opportunities—combining online digital media with classroom teaching, followed by a research project or internship in your final year.

With a growing population, New Zealand healthcare services need a range of skilled people from health promoters and policy analysts to health data management experts and health advisers.

Whatever your choice of major, you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the field you’re passionate about, laying the groundwork for many possible careers or further postgraduate study.
