Cost is understandably one of the most important factors to consider when you are thinking about studying overseas. In New Zealand, most bachelor degrees can be completed in just three years, which helps make studying here more affordable than in the United States.
U.S. Federal Aid can be used to finance your studies at Massey University.
New Zealand degrees are focused on core classes and undergraduate students do not have to take a year of general education classes. This means you can graduate quicker in New Zealand than in the United States. You will also spend less money on accommodation, meals, supplies, and living expenses due to finishing your degree faster.
Average Bachelor’s degree is 3 years
Average Master's degree is 1.5 years
The strong exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and New Zealand dollar makes studying and living here even more affordable, particularly for students who would pay out-of-state fees to a U.S institution.
