How does the exchange programme 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.
  • Have a good academic record, especially in your major area and previous year of study. 
  • Expect to complete one year (120 credits) of study at Massey prior to departing on exchange (or at least one semester of postgraduate study).  You can apply for exchange before you've met this requirement.

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.
