What our students say
"Studying online with Massey enabled me to structure learning around my work schedule. The lecturers were motivating and leaders in their fields. I felt supported throughout my time at Massey, with the faculty and staff always willing to lend a hand. I was able to make some great friends and engage with my peers in meaningful academic conversations, despite being in different locations around the country. I thoroughly enjoyed my online classroom experience and would recommend Massey to anyone wanting a more flexible university journey."
Katie Croom - Graduate Certificate in Arts (Development Studies)
"Massey’s flexible study options meant I didn't have to put having a family on hold to gain an education, or put my education on hold to build my family. I was able to do both and be 100% supported through the whole process."
Krystine Nation - Bachelor of Health Science in Health Promotion
