AUT offers one of the largest physiotherapy programmes in the Southern Hemisphere, and the only one in the North Island. AUT's physiotherapy degree develops physiotherapists who are recognised throughout the world for their knowledge and leadership in health care. Graduates from AUT are at the forefront of a profession that maintains and improves people’s health and wellbeing. Physiotherapists help people improve their quality of life by working with them to overcome physical problems affecting their movement and function. This includes circumstances where movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.

A lot of people come into physiotherapy training thinking that it's all about sports injuries. That's because most people learn about physiotherapy after they've had an injury of their own. As well as direct patient care, physiotherapy also covers public health strategies, advocating for patients and health, teaching and research and developing and implementing health policy. The profession is regulated by the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand and is one of the most highly respected professions.
