At UC, we’re changing the way we teach to reflect the future way of working and to ensure successful pathways for students. Our degree programmes are evidence and practice-based, and designed to address the needs of working professionals and the community. There are programmes that work with and inform government, NGOs, and regional partners.
Addressing population health needs
The Bachelor of Health Sciences degree was designed specifically to address Aotearoa New Zealand’s growing healthcare sector by preparing graduates with the skills required for non-clinical roles. Our Sport degree recognises that sport now operates in a more professional, scientific, and entrepreneurial space.
By shifting its focus from performance to participation, sport becomes a way to foster social, physical, and mental wellbeing.
UC’s postgraduate Child and Family Psychology programme is unique within Aotearoa, and was designed to meet market demand for registered psychologists specifically trained to work with children, adolescents, and families.
Designed for the future
UC’s multidisciplinary approach allows you to develop the skillsets that employers are seeking: collaboration, cultural responsiveness, and innovation. The time you spend in internships, practice clinics, labs, and gyms prepares you well for the workforce. UC graduates are strongly sought after as they have learned to embrace new challenges, and are keen to connect and make positive difference in people’s lives.
