Student Testimonial

"New Zealand is a great place to study and live, and while I was at Massey I really enjoyed meeting new people from different backgrounds. I found the lecturers were always willing to help you out and I know I am leaving Massey with great knowledge and experience. The Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) fully funded my studies and were really helpful in ensuring I was heading in the right direction with everything I needed. I am looking forward to returning to my home country Saudi Arabia ready to apply what I’ve learned from New Zealand and Massey University. "
