Bachelor of Applied Science

With specialties in Sport, Exercise, Health and Massage

Are you passionate about sports, exercise or health? Do you like working with people? Do you want to help others improve their lives to reach their potential? 

If you answered yes to all of these, then this contemporary degree is the pathway for you.

It's based around practical experiences and problem-based learning and you'll learn to reflect and critique your own and others' practice. There'll be the opportunity to gain “real world” industry experience and to take part in community-based projects with the support of our experienced staff.

This degree will allow you to develop the transferable skills that make you work ready.

If you choose the massage and health specialities, you'll complete the New Zealand Diploma in Wellness and Relaxation Massage as your first year of study. You'll then continue into Year 2 of the Bachelor of Applied Science. By successfully completing this degree, you'll meet the requirements for registration with Massage New Zealand (MNZ) as a massage therapist specialist in rehabilitation.

Those who choose to study the exercise specialty will be able to apply for registration with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) after they graduate.
