Bachelor of Natural Medicine
The degree programme integrates traditional wisdom with scientific knowledge. As a student you will gain critical knowledge and understanding of Rongoā Māori healing concepts, natural medicine, nutrition, anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the body. You will also gain sound clinical experience and practice, enabling you to assist and motivate people to achieve optimum health and wellness.
Our recommended study pathways allow you to take between 3 years (full-time), to 4 or 5 years (part-time in Year One & Two, full-time in Year Three) to complete the degree.
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). The third (final, clinical) year is taught in Auckland on-campus, full-time only.
The requirement for full-time study is 16-20 hours per week, plus at least an equivalent time of self-directed learning.
