The Diploma of Naturopathy course gives students the training and skills required to succeed in the professional practice of naturopathy.
Graduates of this NZQA approved 3 year course in naturopathy find careers in private practice, research & natural health care sales and management in New Zealand and abroad.
Wellpark College of Natural Therapies is an NZQA-registered private training establishment. It offers tertiary education in Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga and Medical Sciences.
The college is dedicated to integrated medicine. In this healthcare model, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and natural therapists work together to determine individual health plans that recognise the whole person (mind, body and spirit), optimise wellness and effect the best possible recovery from illness.
Wellpark’s proposal for a national programme of wellness ties in with NZ Ministry of Health priorities, most of which relate to lifestyle and life choices. We envisage national healthcare that, unlike the present ‘ambulance at the bottom of the cliff’ system, educates individuals on how to achieve balance in life. This will improve the health of individuals and, ultimately, that of their families and communities.
Wellpark is moving towards research-based teaching and staff-conducted research projects. We recognise that the Western medical model is based on evidence-based medicine. While natural medicine has grown through generations of wisdom from many cultures, it too must prove its efficacy.
The future for natural therapies is exciting. The use of natural medicines is growing annually as individuals take responsibility for their health and wellbeing. The more paternalistic models of medicine are being challenged. The first goal for natural therapies students is to find out how to manage their own physical health, mental wellbeing and spiritual awareness. They can then assist others in this process of self-discovery. Such work has many implications for our communities. It will bring a lifetime of rewards.

The Naturopathic College of New Zealand was established in 1979 when the founder of the college, Melva Martin, recognised the need in New Zealand for distance education in natural therapies.
The Naturopathic College of New Zealand has grown over the last 29 years but still maintains as its focus providing distance education to enable those who do not have the opportunity to attend in-house training establishments to study and gain qualifications in the increasingly popular and fascinating area of natural health.
The Naturopathic College of New Zealand has been registered as a PTE by NZQA since 1991 and has been receiving Ministry of Education funding for its courses since 1998.
