Become a Global Citizen

Gaining international experience during your time at Massey University will strengthen your CV and benefit you throughout your career. Businesses and companies look for applicants with a global mindset to work with their culturally-diverse employees and overseas clients.

Studying overseas on exchange for a semester or two as part of your Massey degree can propel you along your path toward Global Citizenship. Other options, such as study tours, internships, and international conferences, provide valuable experiences as well. Global Citizen is a Massey University initiative to assist you with taking up these opportunities. Contact Craig Lyons to find out how you can become involved in the opportunities below or those listed on our Internships and Events and Partner Programmes pages.
