Courses involving fieldwork or field trips

A characteristic of many Massey University degree programmes is their applied nature. Massey University also maintains close links with key research and industry partners.

Some courses include a fieldwork component, where a period of practical learning takes place outside of the formal laboratory or theoretical classroom setting. These courses give you a hands-on experience and the opportunity to get out and explore New Zealand as part of your studies.
