Healthcare Studies Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for health studies programmes vary greatly, but students will generally always require experience in science-related subjects such as chemistry and biology.

As healthcare study and its allied subjects often have limited spaces available, entry can be competitive, especially for medicine and dentistry programmes. Applicants who meet entry requirements will also be required to undertake an interview to successfully receive an offer of a place on a course.

Please note that entry requirements vary for each New Zealand university.
