Personalise your overseas experience by taking courses focusing on New Zealand's history, culture, or peoples. A number of Massey courses also offer fieldwork components.
Looking for an internship or experiences outside the classroom? Massey's full-semester internships and other experiential opportunities provide you with future-focused skills to strengthen your resume. One great option is to intern us on the Study Abroad and Student Exchange team.
Many courses in these areas are available to study abroad and exchange students. Explore your options if you are studying any of these subjects.
Massey has world-class athletic facilities and laboratories and excellent Sport Development and Sport Performance programmes. Students studying on our Palmerston North campus can also participate in our Global Student-Athlete options.
Semester 1 is equivalent to the spring/winter semester in the Northern Hemisphere. Semester 2 aligns with the fall semester. Check our semester dates before booking your flights and plan to arrive on campus one week before the start of lectures to attend Orientation.
Four courses, worth 15 credits each, is the normal semester load. 60 credits equate to 12–15 U.S. semester credits, 30 ECTS, and 60 CATS. You can find information about course levels, our numbering system, checking the campus and semester availability, and more on our Selecting Your Courses page.
You must be enrolled in at least 45 credits of Internal mode courses per semester in order to meet Immigration New Zealand's student visa requirements. 45 credits normally equate to three Massey courses. You may take one 15-credit course by Distance or Block mode each semester. Ensure your home university approves of this mode of study before enrolling in a Distance or Block course.
Any prerequisites will be listed on the full course description, under the Requirements heading. Nursing and most Veterinary Science courses are not open to study abroad or exchange students.
