Gain an in-depth understanding of nutrition and the dietary influences that impact on the health of individuals.

Nutrition is a science with real-life applications, providing a range of transferable skills and leading to a variety of careers. Nutrition involves the study of nutrients in food, how the body absorbs and uses these nutrients for growth and maintenance, and the relationship between diet, health and disease.

Nutrition is increasingly relevant in today's society due to its impact on the health of individuals, communities and populations. This specialisation will provide you with expertise in nutrition, and an awareness of what influences the nutrition of individuals and groups in New Zealand and globally.

As people are starting to take more responsibility for their own health to prevent illness, they are faced with a confusing range of often conflicting nutrition information. This programme will equip you with the ability to identify good sources of nutrition information in an ever-changing environment to empower people to make healthier food choices and make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.

A sample of areas covered within the degree includes:

  • Metabolic processes and how nutrients in food affect the human body
  • Application of nutrition science to enhance the health of community groups
  • Effects of major nutrition-related factors on non-communicable diseases that impact on the health of developed nations
  • Identification of reliable sources of up-to-date nutritional information
  • Communication of nutrition principles in a range of contexts using awareness of psychological, cultural and environmental influences on eating behaviour
  • The use of genetics, physiology, culture, environment and social issues to assist in the management of body composition and nutrition choices
  • Work placements with nutrition education programmes, health promotion organisations (governmental and non-governmental), nutrition consultancies, community initiatives, workplace wellbeing programmes and school holiday programmes

In our most recent graduate survey, 85.7% of 2016 Bachelor of Applied Science graduates were in employment (Ara Graduate Outcome Survey, 2016).

On completion of this programme you will have a qualification that enables you to work with people to set goals, improve their diet and exercise regimes.

Advance your existing skills in computing and broaden your employment opportunities in this fast-evolving field.

Our IT industry partners have significant input into the structure and content of this programme to ensure that what is being taught continually meets industry needs.

The first year covers a broad range of ICT topics that will provide you with a solid base of knowledge in software engineering (programming), hardware and networking, website development, IT tools and concepts and mathematics skills relevant to IT.

In years two and three you'll choose one of four specialist pathways: software development, interactive media, networking (systems administration) or information systems and strategies. During this time you'll develop in-depth knowledge of your chosen area through a range of compulsory and elective courses.

You'll also develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, analysis, team work, project management, time management, self-reliance and communication skills. There is a strong emphasis on practical skills and work-readiness, so wherever possible, theory is integrated and applied to practical tasks.

Many courses include group activities or group projects, as the ability to work as part of a team is strongly valued by employers.

In the final semester you'll put all of your acquired skills and knowledge into practice in a 45-credit capstone project (in most cases for a local business). The project is an excellent opportunity to equip yourself with real-world IT experience and to learn from industry people. It also results in a substantial piece of work with which to demonstrate your potential to prospective employers.

Employment prospects are very strong for IT graduates. Many companies are struggling to fill vacancies and are having to recruit overseas.

Job opportunities in the IT sector are forecast to increase significantly in the next few years and the sector is regularly recognised as one of the highest paid in the country and globally. Job opportunities are not limited to IT companies as almost every business these days has IT needs and many non-IT businesses employ significant numbers of IT professionals.

Depending on the specialist pathway followed, you might gain employment in roles such as business analyst, network manager, webmaster, IT support specialist, database administrator, test analyst, systems administrator, web developer, interactive media developer or software developer/programmer.

As a new graduate you're likely to start at a junior level but you can quickly advance to higher-level positions within a few years, especially in larger companies.

The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technologies provides entry to postgraduate ICT programmes at many tertiary institutes, and with strong grades in our Bachelor programme, you may also qualify for entry to a Masters' degree at most universities in New Zealand.

Please refer to Application Documents to find the full pathways for this programme in greater detail.

Become a leader in the fast-evolving tourism and hospitality sector.

This programme has been created in direct response to the substantial growth in tourism and hospitality forecast for New Zealand, and the corresponding need for skilled professionals to fill management roles in this fast-evolving sector. It's designed to ensure that when you graduate you'll have the knowledge and skills needed for this dynamic industry, and that you can be a flexible, future-focused, creative leader who can adapt to changing circumstances.

Your studies will cover: hospitality and tourism trends; marketing strategies for local and international hospitality and tourism contexts; financial management strategies; business analysis for hospitality and tourism; communication; self-management; problem solving; teamwork and planning. In addition, you'll explore New Zealand's heritage and indigenous Māori culture, and gain an understanding of sustainability issues relating to tourism, such as its impact on the environment.

You'll learn how to operate in a broad range of contexts and you'll examine the technology used in the industry (including the impact of social media on marketing, revenue management, customer relationships, and reputation management). Much of your study will take place in simulated tourism and hospitality environments using authentic situations. You'll also undertake a research project investigating a real-world hospitality workplace issue, and work experience within the sector.

With this qualification your career opportunities include resort operations manager, sales and marketing manager, tourism information officer/manager, human resources manager (tourism and hospitality specialist), bar manager, front office manager, customer services manager, tourism event manager, tourism reception management, function, catering and events manager, food and beverage manager, fast food restaurant manager, holiday park manager and rooms division manager.

Be part of the next productivity step-change in construction, architecture and civil engineering.

Our Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modelling is a perfect professional development opportunity for anyone with a degree (or degree-equivalent qualification) in construction, quantity surveying, construction management, architecture or civil engineering.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) provides a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of any kind of built facility. It acts as a shared knowledge resource, creating a reliable basis for decisions by all stakeholders involved in the building's lifecycle, from its design and conception right through to its utilisation and demolition. BIM is used by individuals, businesses and government agencies who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain diverse physical infrastructures.

We've developed this programme in response to industry demand for BIM-qualified team members within the construction management, quantity surveying, architecture and civil engineering professions. It will provide you with a broad understanding of Building Information Modelling and is delivered part-time, with courses available in the evening to accommodate employment commitments.

The graduate certificate is made up of four courses each exploring an aspect of BIM. The courses are: Systems and Technologies; Building Information Modelling; 3D Documentation and Collaboration; MEP Integration. In July 2019 we will be offering the first of these courses (Building Information Modelling), with the rest available in 2020.

NB: Recognition of prior learning may be available if your experience aligns to the course structure.

Upon completion of this qualification, you'll have the knowledge and skills required to work as a BIM technician or co-ordinator.

On completion of this programme you can progress to a degree in architectural studies or construction, or our Graduate Diploma in Building Information Modelling (available from July 2020). The latter will equip you to work as a BIM lead, BIM designer or BIM specialist/expert.
