Massey University Student Exchange Programme

200+ Universities.  25 Countries.  $0 More in tuition.

Other Massey students, just like you, have experienced the world beyond the Pacific at one of our world-class partner universities in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

How does exchange work?

Student exchange allows you to:

  • Study overseas for one or two semesters at one of Massey's partner universities.
  • Pay your regular Massey tuition fees (60 credits per semester).
  • Continue to receive your StudyLink loan and/or allowances.
  • Earn Massey credit for the papers you study overseas.
  • All our partners offer papers in English.
  • Enjoy an overseas experience without delaying the completion of your degree.

Who is eligible?

Student Exchange is open to domestic, international and distance students from all Massey programme areas, except for Engineering, Nursing and Veterinary Science.

To be considered for the Exchange Programme, you must:

  • Be enrolled in a Bachelor or Bachelor with Honours (360 - 480 credits) or Master degree (180 or 240 credits) at Massey University.
  • Expect to complete one year (120 credits) of study at Massey prior to departing on exchange.  You can apply for exchange before you've met this requirement.
  • Have a 5.0 (B) grade point average across all your Massey papers.

At least 30 credits at the 300 level in your major and 15 credits at the 300 level in your minor must be completed at Massey.  Your other 300 level credits can be earned while on exchange.

Your grade point average must continue to meet the minimum requirement until you depart for your exchange.

Additional requirements for Master's students

  • You must complete the exchange in your first year of postgraduate study
  • Master's students are limited to one semester of exchange.
  • You must have permission from the Director of Teaching and Learning in your College and from the supervisor of your postgraduate programme.
