Financial assistance for students

We understand that COVID-19 continues to have a financial impact on many of our students and we want to support you to successfully continue your studies for the rest of this year.

Through both University and Government funding, we now have an additional $1.5 million to support you if you have been affected by COVID-19. Information on the different types of assistance available, and how to apply, are outlined below.

Temporary financial assistance

Student Assistance Programme

All students who are enrolled at Massey can apply for temporary financial assistance of up to $500 through the Student Assistance Programme. This programme has received additional funding from the University and is administered by our student associations. For more information, see the relevant student association website:

Building your financial resilience

COVID-19 has highlighted the precarious state of many New Zealanders’ finances and the need to build financial resilience. This is key to long-term financial security and we want to help all our students manage their money better. In collaboration with University’s Fin-Ed Centre (Financial Education and Research Centre), all Massey University students now have access to a comprehensive financial skills training course at no cost. This is available on Stream for you to access and work your way through at a time that suits you best.
