Auckland at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. More information.

Massey University Learning Centre

Massey University is collaborating with the Nanjing University of Finance and Economics (NUFE) to provide a dedicated learning centre for our students who remain in China due to the temporary closure of borders due to COVID-19. 

The Massey Learning Centre will give students the option of joining classmates on campus at one of China’s outstanding universities.  Students will participate in online classes delivered by Massey University’s top academics with the additional support of local learning advisors.

Massey University is working with the New Zealand government on options to welcome international students back to campus when it is safe to do so, however it is likely that most of our overseas students will need to commence their 2021 studies online rather than in New Zealand.

What's included


Three classrooms to accommodate up to 100 students (80 from Massey Business School and 20 from Massey’s College of Creative Arts) fitted out with online streaming for lectures with reliable WIFI.  IT support will be available. 

Massey’s students will be issued with a NUFE identification card, giving them access to all of the same facilities as NUFE's enrolled students: e.g: university library; gyms; sports facilities and the student canteen.  By having this access to NUFE’s facilities this will help improve students’ sense of belonging. 

Due to China’s careful COVID-19 arrangements, all accepted students will be offered and accommodated at the NUFE campus.

Non-Academic Advisor and Support:

Support will be available for student management and services, pastoral care and non-academic support for students/liaising with NUFE on a range of student support matters (e.g: arranging IT support, student feedback, translation if required).  Occasional social activities will also be arranged to give students a sense of belonging and community.

Academic Support Advisors and Support:

Four academic support advisors. One advisor will be supporting College of Creative Arts students and three supporting Massey Business School students. The Academic Support Advisors will review any asynchronous activities and sit in on synchronous teaching sessions provided by Massey staff from within New Zealand.  They may provide local question and answer and lexicon support sessions. They may provide general support on study skills, types of assessment writing and referencing advice sessions. They may provide catch up or additional classes to support ordinary sessions as needed.
