Bachelor of Natural Medicine
The degree programme integrates traditional wisdom with scientific knowledge. As a student you will gain critical knowledge and understanding of the philosophy of natural medicine, herbal medicine, nutrition, research, anatomy & physiology, massage and pathophysiology. You will also gain sound clinical experience and practice, enabling you to assist and motivate people to achieve optimum health and wellness.
It is recommended that you study the degree full-time over three years, however part-time options are available.
Part-time students have the same level of course attendance or access as full-time students in each course. However, they study fewer courses per year.
The first two years of the programme are available on-campus or on-line (in New Zealand or overseas). Classes are live-streamed and recorded for online learners. The third (final, clinical) year is taught in Auckland on-campus, full-time only.
Full-time study requires 16 hours class attendance per week, plus at least an equivalent 16 – 20 hours of self-directed learning.
