To enrol in the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business programme you must qualify for undergraduate admission, either through Bursaries and Scholarship Examinations, NCEA Level 3, New Zealand University Entrance, Admission with Equivalent Status, Discretionary Entrance or Adult Admission. Please visit http://enrol.massey.ac.nz for details.
In order to transfer into a conjoint programme, students must meet the following requirements:
Candidates who have studied at another tertiary institution should submit a verified academic transcript following their online enrolment application.
Courses from completed qualifications may not be cross credited into or between components of the conjoint programme.
For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
First year full-time students in the conjoint degrees programme should enrol online for a total of eight courses (120 credits), including the 100-level courses required for the BBus and BSc subjects they intend to study at 200-level. Generally you should take at least three courses from the BSc component and at least four courses from the BBus component. Be careful to select the conjoint degree from the list rather than the Bachelor of Business or the Bachelor of Science.
In your second year you will need to take nine courses, so that by the end of the year you have passed at least 255 credits, including all the compulsory core business courses of the BBus, at least 60 credits from 100-level BSc courses and some 200-level courses.
In your third year you will normally take a combination of 200- and 300-level courses, which will allow you to complete your 300-level requirements in your fourth year.
You should normally choose about half your credits for each year from each component.
You will need to obtain at least 510 credits, made up of at least 255 credits from the BBus Schedule (the BBus component) and at least 255 credits from Schedule B of the BSc (the BSc component).
For the BBus component you will need to complete the 8 core courses, the majoring requirements of at least one subject, no more than 135 credits at 100-level and at least 60 credits at 300-level.
For the BSc component you will need to complete the majoring requirements of at least one subject, at least one course from each of at least three subjects, and take an approved course in communication skills.
