Admission Regulations

Admission regulations expiring following the implementation of the new Student Management System

1. Enrolment at Massey University requires completion of three processes, admission to the University, admission to a specific qualification, and enrolment for a programme. These processes may be completed either separately or together.

2. Admission may be granted conditionally in the case of students who have not yet met the requirements for entry to University. At the appropriate time prior to the commencement of an enrolment period the University initiates offers of places in programmes in response to Enrolment Applications. For doctoral students after the first Enrolment Application the doctoral students must accept an Offer of Place and receive a Confirmation of Enrolment for successive years.

3. Applicants who intend to enrol for tuition in an imminent enrolment period but who have not previously obtained admission to Massey University should apply for admission and enrolment simultaneously by submitting an Enrolment Application and by accepting any Offer of Place. Enrolment in this case will remain conditional upon admission being finalised.

4. The final dates by which Enrolment Applications must be made are advised under the Enrolment Regulations. Enrolments are regarded as being stabilised four weeks from the commencement of a semester for purposes of reporting to the Ministry of Education.

5. Admission to Massey University does not of itself constitute entitlement to be enrolled for tuition in any particular qualification or enrolment period.

6. Massey University operates a preferential score admission scheme for admission to undergraduate qualifications. Applicants to undergraduate qualifications will be assessed and eligible applicants will be offered a place in a qualification.
