Because our School has an international focus, we encourage students to make the most of opportunities to study overseas. It’s an ideal way to experience another language first hand or immerse yourself in the history and culture of another place.
Massey University has exchange agreements with around 200 institutions around the world where you can study for a trimester or two. Credits gained count towards your Massey degree.

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences offers study awards to undergraduates to help offset the cost of travelling and studying overseas. $5,000 can be awarded for one semester overseas and up to $7,000 for two semesters.
For Massey history/humanities students who have done French language at school or university, and would like more opportunity to use their French language, there is an exciting possibility to do an exchange with the History programme of the University of Toulouse II Le Mirail.
French language assistant positions are available for New Zealanders in France and in New Caledonia. You will help French students improve their confidence in spoken English with interactive and recreational activities.
