Physiotherapists work to help restore movement, function and quality of life to people of all ages affected by injury, disability, or health conditions.
The Wintec physiotherapy programme will provide the skills, knowledge and qualification to work as a physiotherapist in Aotearoa New Zealand. It is ideal for applicants who are engaged with their community and have a commitment and interest in Māori and/or Pacific Health.
Studying Physiotherapy at Wintec will involve a combination of learning theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real physiotherapy environments. Students will have the chance to learn about the physiotherapy profession by applying classroom learning in practice.
If you are interested in applying to study physiotherapy at Wintec, head over to the Bachelor of Physiotherapy programme page.
"I started my Wintec journey with the Te Ara Pūtake pathway course, and now I’m studying towards a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. The delivery and vision of having practitioners who are more culturally responsive towards Māori was a big drawcard for me. I believe Wintec is heading in the right direction in improving health disparities within Māori and rural communities in Aotearoa. "
