Mode

Courses at Massey can be studied internally, via distance or by block mode. Internal mode requires attendance at regularly scheduled classes on one of Massey's campuses. Distance mode allows students to study via correspondence and/or by electronic means, with the opportunity usually provided for one or more Contact Workshops. Block mode refers to internal courses where the class contact is in a compressed time period.

Semester

The academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester consists of a period of teaching followed by a study/examination period at the end, and a mid-semester break. Semester One runs from late February to late June. Semester Two runs from mid-July to mid-November. There is also a Summer School, which runs from mid-November to mid-February. Single semester courses run in one semester. Double semester courses span two adjacent semesters.
