What type of student am I?

Domestic Students

A domestic student means that you are a New Zealand citizen or you are a holder of a residence visa in New Zealand.

Internal Students

You will be studying the majority or all of your courses on-campus. If 50% or more of your total credits in one academic year will come from courses studied on one of the Massey campuses at Albany, Manawatu or Wellington, you will pay domestic tuition fees and internal non tuition fees

Distance Learning and Block Course Students residing in New Zealand

You will be studying the majority or all of your courses by distance learning while residing in New Zealand, or by attending concentrated block courses. If 50% or more of your total credits in one academic year will come from distance/block courses you will pay domestic tuition fees and distance non tuition fees.

Distance Learning Students residing offshore

You will be a New Zealand citizen or holder of a residence class visa studying courses by distance learning while residing offshore.
