About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The Wintec Bachelor of Physiotherapy programme differs in several ways from those currently offered in Aotearoa New Zealand. A key aim of this programme, which is strongly linked to the results of an extensive consultation process with industry, is to develop work-ready physiotherapists, equipped to meet the needs of communities across the Midland region, in particular rural and remote communities. Furthermore, we aim to adhere to the nationally mandated aim of the New Zealand Physiotherapy Board, and industry-identified requirement to increase the number of Māori and Pasifika physiotherapists in Aotearoa New Zealand. It is our belief that all practicing physiotherapists in this country should be culturally competent and confident in working with whānau.
