Māori Health at AUT University

Te Ara Hauora Māori

Te Ara Hauora Māori, the Māori health path provides study opportunities in all the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences undergraduate degrees. There is also a postgraduate programme in Māori Health. We encourage all students to include at least one Māori health paper in their programme of study (te reo Māori is not a prerequisite for Māori health studies).

There is a growing need for health, sport and science graduates to work with Māori. Our Māori health papers provide you the opportunity to work effectively with Māori, to gain access to Māori networks, improve your ability to be comfortable working with whānau and Māori communities, and extend your job prospects.

Support and relationships

If you choose to study Māori Health we support you every step of the way. You are supported to form relationships with Māori liaison services, Māori stakeholders and communities, Māori staff and students.

Flexibility and options

Entry to degrees can be as a school leaver or as an adult with life experience, a health work background or certificate qualification from AUT Health and Environmental Sciences certificate programmes or other wānanga. If you wish to study while working we offer weekend wānanga block courses at Ngā Wai o Horotiu, AUT’s marae.
