Our Mission

Our mission is to be New Zealand’s leading provider of affordable blended and online education in the field of natural medicine, offering high quality education.

We provide support networks that facilitate learning by creating an environment for all students to achieve their full potential, fostering empathy and respect for all.

Continual Improvement

The fields of natural medicine and health science is undergoing fast growth and development. NCNZ recognises the need for ongoing research and learning. Having an Education Team means we can invest the time and resources required to synthesise new understandings and incorporate them into our training. As such, the culture at NCNZ is one of continual improvement in programme content and delivery.

NCNZ has well-established review processes in place. We recognise the value of student feedback and regularly gather and review this to identify areas where improvements can be made. This is then incorporated into our review process and actioned. That is our commitment to your learning.

Our Values:

Te Whare Tapa Whā

The Naturopathic College of New Zealand upholds the principles of Te Whare Tapa Whā , the Māori model of health, which closely aligns to the principles of holistic healthcare. The Te Whare Tapa Whā model is an analogy for a person’s health. The four cornerstones (or walls) of the house represents different facets of our health – the mind, the body, the spirit and the family. The health of the land (whenua) and air (hau) are aspects of this model that are also part of a healthy environment:

  • Taha tinana (physical health)
  • Taha wairua (spiritual health)
  • Taha whānau (family health)
  • Taha hinengaro (mental health)
