Each year more than 5000 international students from over 100 countries find a warm and welcoming environment at our three North Island campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington. Our geographic spread over these three major cities, as well as our heritage and the range of programmes we offer, provides an environment that enables students from around the world to be creative, connected and innovative contributors to society.  

We have a well-established reputation for academic leadership, research excellence and innovative teaching grounded in real-world issues. With 30, 000 students, Massey is New Zealand’s national university. We are also the leading university in New Zealand for global online education and offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees students can complete fully online. Massey has been teaching via distance learning for over 50 years and offers students from around the world the ability to tailor their study to meet their needs while remaining closely connected with industry, professional organisations and local communities.
