Study Health at UC
Are you interested in making a difference to the health and wellbeing of people in your community? Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury offers a range of undergraduate and graduate qualifications that will lead to clinical and non-clinical careers in the allied health field.
Healthcare today is increasingly focused on population wellness, disease prevention, and delivering health services in the community. As a result, the health workforce has become more diverse and interdisciplinary, creating exciting new career opportunities.
Public health, psychology, social work, sport, geography, or youth development — UC Health is multi-disciplinary and incorporated into a variety of programmes.
Join our inspiring health graduates in helping to make positive and meaningful change in people’s lives, engaging with whānau, workplaces and communities.
Our range of qualifications provide a pathway to a number of careers including professional sports coaching, management and teaching (when combined with a second teaching subject and postgraduate qualification).
Our Postgraduate Diploma in Child and Family Psychology was designed to meet market demand for registered psychologists specifically trained to work with children, adolescents and families.
UC's Master of Counselling is the only postgraduate Counselling programme in the South Island and takes a solution-focused approach. Graduates working in professional practice will enhance and promote the positive growth, wellbeing, and mental health of individuals, families and groups.
The Centre provides assessments and interventions on a short-term basis for children and families/whānau not currently receiving support from other agencies.
