New Zealand is now at COVID-19 Alert Level 4.
The University has now commenced mid-semester break, which will be brought forward to allow you the opportunity to focus on yourself and your family at this difficult time. When the semester recommences on April 20, as originally planned, the University will move to online delivery. The University campuses are now closed to all students.
Please check Stream and this website for further updates.
Our Library services have also moved online so you will still be able to access a huge number of electronic journal articles and ebooks – and the Library will be purchasing extra copies of ebooks during this period.
Library staff are still available to help with finding information, or with any other questions you may have, although the distance students’ book courier service has stopped. For more information on the services available, including booking an appointment with Library staff, visit the Library website.
Student health and counselling is still available, but appointments will be by phone, Skype, Zoom or WeChat. We know this service is more important than ever and we encourage you to make use of it.
The Library and other student services are open for online services only. Recreation centres, daycare centres and food services are closed (catering services for our students in halls remain open).

We’ve brought forward the start of mid-semester break, but semester will recommence on April 20, as originally planned. We're still working through what the rest of the semester will look like, but you will have all your required course content delivered to you.
We suggest holding onto your book for now and renewing it online.
Our health services are continuing to operate, but are currently only offering online services.
If you are selecting courses in your online portal and still intend to come to NZ, you may remain in the internal offering of the relevant course. Additional online materials may be available on Stream for you to access.
When you arrive in New Zealand you may continue your qualification in the face-to-face classes.
In some cases, a particular course cannot be completed online and you will be encouraged to switch to an alternative course.

The Massey Digital Innovation Team has undertaken work to improve the stability of Stream (Massey’s online learning environment) in China for this period.
Massey has worked hard to identify courses that students can study online while offshore and your study should now be underway. If you still need help choosing courses or are having any difficulties please contact us.
Students impacted by the travel restrictions as a result of the Coronavirus who experience difficulties studying online and withdraw after the fees refund eligibility period will be able to enrol in that course (or in an approved equivalent) one further time with no additional cost in the next available semester.
Under these unique and challenging circumstances it is important that affected students stay in contact with staff at Massey and share any difficulties they are experiencing. Massey will be providing additional monitoring of affected students’ progress and will contact students who require further assistance.
PhD students who are currently based overseas and are having difficulties travelling to New Zealand should contact the Graduate Research School for further support.
Please contact the National Contact Centre on 0800 Massey (0800 627 739 from within New Zealand and +64 6 350 5701 from outside New Zealand).
Please be assured that we are working on multiple options to help alleviate this experience. Please continue to use Stream by trying to log on multiple times and at different times of the day to gain access while we work on improving this connectivity for you.
Online learning undertaken as a result of disruption to study due to the coronavirus outbreak will be approved by the Chinese Education Authorities and will not impact the recognition of your qualification, obtained at Massey, on your return to China.
The Chinese Education Authorities have confirmed this approval for online learning applies to a maximum of four undergraduate courses and postgraduate courses up to a maximum of 60 credits, selected for the Semester One study period only (from Feb – July 2020).
If you are a student affected by the coronavirus situation, we are offering flexibility with admission and enrolment dates.
The last day to apply for course enrolment is now Monday 9 March. However, we strongly advise you to enrol as soon as possible. In most cases, if you are unable to travel to New Zealand you will be assisted to commence your studies online. If you are an affected student please contact us for more advice.
We know this has affected many of our students and we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to help you to continue with your studies. Massey University has world-class online learning facilities, and you may be able to continue your studies off-campus. Please contact the National Contact Centre on +64 6 350 5701 to speak to our staff about your study options.
