Massey University is committed to making sure students are well supported, have top quality experiences and graduate with skills that make them highly employable. We have world-class researchers supervising our students in a range of disciplines.
The doctoral degree is the highest degree awarded at the university. The degree constitutes a significant piece of research in the form of a thesis or exegesis of up to 100,000 words or a series of publications that make a substantive and original contribution to knowledge. At Massey the research must be defended before a panel of experts and takes 3-4 years maximum to complete for a full-time student. The professional doctorates also include course work and in some cases internships/practicums.
We offer internationally recognised research-led qualifications that are hugely relevant in today’s world.

Our supervisors are active and well known in their fields of expertise. They provide the best support to our students.
When you use the expertise search you might find that key word searches bring up a large pool of people. If this is the case use the apply additional filter function that sits under the key word search.
For example ‘language switching costs’ brings up a large number of people. By adding psychology to the filter it reduces the list significantly
