See what our students say
“I was expecting to like New Zealand, but I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with it. I also liked the professors at Massey. They are super laid back, understanding, and helpful. Makes learning more easygoing and less stressful.”
“Studying in Palmerston North turned out to be a lot more relaxed than back home in England, with smaller classes leading to a more personal relationship with lecturers.”
“I simply loved the beaches, sea views and the picturesque bays around Wellington. The support I received since arriving at Massey was great.”
