physiotherapist working on client

Physiotherapy

As a physiotherapist your days will be spent working to help restore movement, function and quality of life to people of all ages affected by injury, disability or health conditions.  

If you’re engaged with your community and have a commitment and interest in Māori and/or Pacific Health, and you’d like to gain the skills, knowledge and qualification to work as a physiotherapist in Aotearoa New Zealand, check out our programmes!

Your study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real physiotherapy environments. You will have the chance to learn about the physiotherapy profession through applying classroom learning in practice.

Please note: It is anticipated that there will be more applications than places available, therefore applications received prior to 12 November will be prioritised.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements to the courses, we offer the Te Ara Pūtake My Academic Pathway (Health Pathway) to help prepare you for enrolment in physiotherapy.

We also have further inter-professional study options such as postgraduate and master qualifications if you’re looking for opportunity for role development in the health and social practice professions. See our available postgraduate qualifications.
