About Massey University

palmerston-campus.jpg Massey University is New Zealand's defining university, with three major campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington. Massey is characterised by the applied nature of its teaching and research programmes and by its special expertise in the fields of Sciences, Food Technology, Creative Arts, Social Sciences, Education and Business.

Academic staff in many fields are internationally renowned, and leading-edge research is undertaken across our colleges, often in collaboration with other universities, research institutions and industry. Massey has a proud record of using this expertise to work with developing countries, and our focus on technology and business means our students continue to meet international demands.

Our international student environment

Massey University is one of New Zealand's largest universities with more than 34,000 students studying across three vibrant campuses. We welcome more than 5,000 international students from more than 100 countries each year. We also have a growing number of international students studying virtually through our world-class online and borderless programmes.

Massey has over 100 active international relationships and academic agreements with foreign universities to foster study abroad and student exchange opportunities for encouraging student mobility and diversity.

We pride ourselves on the relevance of our programmes, on our openness to students of diverse backgrounds spanning age, geographic location, educational background, ethnicity and culture, on the support we provide for students through our commitment as a signatory to the Education (Pastoral Care for International Students) Code of Practice 2016, and on the relationships we have built with our alumni worldwide.
