Welcome to South Pacific College of Natural Medicine.

Both part time and full time options are available to international students who wish to study our Bachelor of Natural Medicine programme.

For students who commence study via the on-line learning option from their home country, part time study options are available for the first two years of the curriculum. The third and final year can only be completed on-campus as there is a large clinic component.

Where we advertise compulsory workshops for on-site learning courses, alternative options will be arranged for international on-line learners so they do not have to travel to New Zealand for the on-site learning weekends. Summer school may be available for some practical content prior to the commencement of the third, on-campus year of study. For courses such as Massage, it may be possible to find an equivalent course overseas and apply for credit toward our Bachelor degree.

Immigration New Zealand requires international students who intend studying on-campus in New Zealand to be enrolled full time.

Our international fees are very competitive overall, compared to other private tertiary providers in New Zealand. Our major point of difference from other natural health providers is that we offer one of only two degrees in our particular field of medicine; AND we offer an on-line learning option for the first two years of our degree programme.

Empowering each student to achieve their goals, whether further study or employment, our success is defined by our student’s success. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to SPCNM.
