As an International Student, you need to carefully consider and plan for the cost of studying at Massey University. The fees differ according to the degree or qualification you wish to apply for and whether you study in New Zealand on a Massey University campus or from overseas by distance education. Fees must be paid before you start your programme of study.
These costs include your tuition fees, international student medical and travel insurance, accommodation and living costs in New Zealand.
These costs include your tuition fees and associated expenses for your programme of study. As a rule the cost of distance education for international students is 15% less than when studying on a Massey campus in New Zealand. You will also need to take into account the cost of ensuring you have adequate internet access and any expenses for attending contact workshops.
A range of scholarships and financial assistance packages are available to international students studying at Massey University.
If you have gained a New Zealand resident class visa, you need to supply a verified copy of your resident class visa from your passport. Your letter from Immigration New Zealand advising your residency has been approved in principle will not be accepted.
If you have gained New Zealand citizenship, you need to supply a verified copy of the photo page of your New Zealand passport, or a copy of your New Zealand Citizenship Certificate.
