Travel restrictions don’t have to keep you from having your New Zealand experience. Virtual Study Abroad allows you to study at Massey remotely.
Virtual Study Abroad enables you to take up to four online courses per semester. This gives you the flexibility to enrol in a single course or take a full-time load during one of our semesters.
Each 15-credit course equates to 3 – 4 U.S. semester credits, 7.5 ECTS, or 15 CATS.
Most subjects at Massey, except for design and creative arts, are available for you to study, including unique areas focused on New Zealand history, society, land, animals, business, and Māori language, culture, and arts.
You are welcome to enrol in any Distance course you are eligible to take. Ensure the Distance course you want to take does not have a Contact Workshop before enrolling in it.
You can find the Contact Workshop heading on each course page by following the link above to the subject and course you want, then clicking on the Distance offering.
Virtual Study Abroad students go through the same application process and meet the same entry requirements as traditional Study Abroad students.
