Responsibilities of distance learning students

What are my responsibilities?

Massey University recognises that the relationship between students and staff is a partnership where both groups are active participants in learning and teaching at the University. In order to remove uncertainty from the relationship the University decided to enter into an explicit contract with its students. By enrolling at Massey you are offering to enter a contract with the University. The Grievance Procedures referred to in Clause 12 of the Contract are set out in the Calendar. The Contract is formed if and when the University issues a Confirmation of Enrolment.

Massey University accepts its responsibility to provide timely, accurate and helpful information on which you can make your programme planning decisions (refer to Clause 10). However, it is also your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the relevant regulations of the qualification in which you wish to enrol and to ensure you meet all requirements.

It is your responsibility to contact a Course Advisor for any required approvals, clarification of the University’s rules and regulations and for guidance in academic planning. It is also for you to ensure your proposed programme of study has no lecture timetable clashes, to manage your workload and to meet the published requirements of your courses.
