Massey is New Zealand's only truly national university. Our different campuses offer a range of options and lifestyles. The campuses are:
The academic year is divided into two semesters. Each semester consists of a period of teaching followed by a study/examination period at the end, and a mid-semester break. Semester One runs from late February to late June. Semester Two runs from mid-July to mid-November. There is also a Summer School, which runs from mid-November to mid-February. Single semester courses run in one semester. Double semester courses span two adjacent semesters.
Choose a semester to show only those courses that are available in that teaching period. Or choose the "All" option to view courses offered in any semester.
Massey's courses are divided into different subject areas. Each area is defined by the first three numbers in the course's number. Select a course prefix to search for all of the courses in a particular subject. For example, if you knew you needed to do one more Finance course, you could select "125.xxx Finance" to display all of the courses with numbers starting "125".
Massey's courses are divided into different levels. Generally each level pertains to a different year of study. Use the following information as a guide, as there are some exceptions.
courses at Massey can be studied internally, by distance or by block mode. Internal mode requires attendance at regularly scheduled classes on one of Massey's campuses. Distance Learning (Extramural) mode allows students to study via correspondence and/or by electronic means, with the opportunity usually provided for one or more Contact Workshops. Block mode refers to internal courses where the class contact is in a compressed time period.
Choose from one of the following options to view only those courses offered in the particular mode:
When you select a year from this filter only the courses offered in the particular year are shown.
