This guide has been prepared to assist you with enrolment in the Master of Veterinary Medicine at Massey University. The admission and enrolment process can take several weeks to complete, so once you have decided to enrol in an MVM course it is good to start the process as soon as you can. The first time you enrol with us, you will have to print out the forms and send them to us. For future courses, you can complete the enrolment process online. Most of the forms are quite straightforward to complete, but as the MVM programme is a distance learning programme our notes below may help clarify some aspects of the forms for you. Let’s get started!
Before completing the forms please check you meet the admission requirements as outlined on the entry requirements page.
You need to provide Massey with verified documents. The verified documents required depend on your circumstances but are likely to include:
To verify the documents you need to:
Any documents in languages other than English need to be translated into English by a certified translator and then verified in English.
Please do not send Massey the original documents, only verified copies.
Take note of the following as you will need the information to include on the enrolment forms later:
You should also check that the examination date and contact workshop dates suit you. You do not need to write these on enrolment forms.
Open the Application for Admission and Enrolment as an International Student in the Master of Veterinary Medicine (MVM) form (you should download the form above then complete it using Adobe Acrobat Reader).
Useful information is contained in the first two pages—please read them carefully. This is the form you will complete online, print out, sign and date, then post/courier to Massey University.
Begin filling in the form at Part A on page 3. Type in your information online and print the form later when you have finished.
Complete all sections as they apply to you.
Print, sign and date the form.
Check you have the supporting documentation in the checklist on the form. Details of how to verify documents are found in the information section on page 1 of the form.

Your materials include an administration guide which tells you all you need to know about how the course runs and what you need to do by any particular time. Have a good look through it when your materials arrive.
Online materials will first become available to you through your class website when your course commences, and access continues until completion of the course. The administration guide in your course materials explains how to access your class website.
