Before the start of Semester One and Semester Two each year, Massey University runs orientation programmes on each campus. These include a Pacific orientation, which is a great opportunity to meet other Pacific students and find out what’s happening, what support is available and who you can talk to.

There will also be community orientation events in Northland, Auckland, Napier and Wellington to connect with Massey distance students around orientation time.

Find out more about orientation at Massey University on the orientation page.
