Entry requirements

There are no special entry requirements for the Bachelor of Construction programme other than those that qualify you for undergraduate study at Massey University. However, you will need to have a good understanding of Mathematics to at least Year 12 level. If you do not have a strong background in Mathematics, but do have an entrance qualification, then you will likely need to take an additional Maths course at foundation level, either before or during the first year of your degree.

Credits and prior learning

Previous study at tertiary level or relevant knowledge and skill gained through formal training may enable you to be granted credit towards your programme. If you have previously completed a New Zealand Diploma in either Quantity Surveying or Construction Management (Level 6) you may be eligible for credit for a number of Part 1 and 2 courses.  You need to formally apply for credit when you apply for the qualification online. Your credit application and any documentation should be submitted as early as possible so you know of any credit awarded before you choose which courses to enrol in. You will be informed by letter whether credit can be granted.

For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
