Find Yourself In New Zealand

Deferring Semester 2 2021 applications

We do not expect any new international students will be able to enter New Zealand in time for Semester 2 2021.  We encourage all students to defer their applications until Semester 1 2022.

Study Abroad students who do not want to wait for their New Zealand experience can take online courses at Massey through Virtual Study Abroad.

Studying at one of Massey’s three campuses is a great way to experience the Kiwi lifestyle, explore a beautiful country, and make new friends, all while gaining academic credit toward your degree.  Past students have shared great stories with us about their time here in New Zealand.

One of our students filmed the amazing things she got up to during her time at Massey.  You can't do all this back home!

Massey is a world-ranked university offering excellent courses when you're not out having the time of your life exploring New Zealand. Our What can I study page is a great place to begin looking for courses.

You can check our list of student exchange partners if you are not sure whether your home university has an exchange with us.

Gap Year Study Abroad

Many people look to travel overseas for a year after completing High School. You can combine travel with an introduction to university life by spending a semester at Massey University.

Our Gap Year Study Abroad programme is for those 18 or over at the beginning of their studies at Massey and who meet their home country/region requirements.

You can take first-year courses, stay in Massey accommodation, and explore New Zealand while earning university credit you can take back to your home country.

National Expedition and Internship

Our customised Northern Hemisphere summer study abroad programme will not run in its current format in 2021.  We are exploring ways to offer virtual internships for interested students.

Global Student-Athlete

A semester abroad doesn't have to keep you from your training.  Global Student-Athlete provides athletes from any sport with a range of services to increase your strength, improve your stamina, boost your mental game, and send you back fitter than when you arrived.

Our Find Yourself in New Zealand guide is packed with information about Massey and opportunities to explore our country.  Studying in New Zealand has a glossary of slang, suggestions of great places to visit, and lots of other useful tips.  NauMai NZ is another great resource to help prepare for your life here as an international student.
