English language at Massey University

Intensive English language studies (IELS)

The English language team at Massey University offers a wide range of intensive English language (IELS) classes during the week and you will be integrated with other international students studying here. The courses will improve students’ ability to handle everyday situations in English and will help students to develop a natural and accurate style of English pronunciation. Our English language courses will also improve your ability to express ideas clearly and confidently in English. All four skills are covered during the week, reading and writing, listening and speaking. In addition we offer opportunities to learn in our virtual Stream environment and you will benefit from the wide range of facilities offered by Massey.

The IELS programme provides students with the opportunity to improve their English language proficiency at their own pace. The programme is offered at all campuses and the Centre offers a variety of study options to meet a student's individual needs.

Some of the key features of our English language programme are:

  • Weekly enrolments
  • Small classes and focused one-to-one teaching
  • A mix of interactive resources to help you learn
  • Well qualified, friendly and experienced lecturers
  • Individual tutorials and additional specialised classes, such as IELTS preparation and grammar

Our programme will help students who want to prepare for university, IELTS or looking to improve their general English.

All students will be tested on arrival and placed in the most suitable level. For further information about the programme or applying, contact us.
