Welcome to Massey University Massey University is New Zealand’s defining University and has a long and proud tradition of academic and research excellence. Among New Zealand tertiary institutions, Massey is unique. It draws on a rich history that mixes leadership in agri-food, creativity and innovation across campuses located at Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington with pre-eminence in distance education and a strong record of engagement with industry and the local and international community.
Since its early beginning, senior Massey academic and research staff have enabled the University to achieve a number of New Zealand firsts. Massey has New Zealand’s only Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences, has pioneered and led distance learning and education, and has international recognition in disciplines as diverse as Finance, Agriculture, Food Technology, Design, Science and Engineering, Education, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Aviation. The University is recognized as
the nation’s leading teaching university and is host to the National centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence.
Each year, around four thousand international students from more than 100 countries find a warm and welcoming environment at Massey and an intellectual climate in which they are encouraged to excel. our students experience research-led teaching, outstanding student support services and high quality facilities. our goal is that all Massey students graduate with the mix of academic excellence and employment-related skills which will see them flourish in their chosen careers in New Zealand or overseas.
Massey is New Zealand’s tertiary education gateway to the world. We recognize that choosing to leave your own country in order to achieve academic qualifications is a life- changing decision. I would like to warmly invite you to join our University and be part of our diverse and stimulating student community. I want to assure you of our commitment

Mirroring New Zealand’s development from a primarily agrarian economy to a modern mixed-economy global competitor, Massey was established as an agricultural college in Palmerston North in 1927 and awarded university status in 1964. The Massey Albany campus was established during dynamic growth in the 1990s, and in 1998 Massey’s national portfolio was completed with the addition of the world-class School of Design and conservatorium of Music in central Wellington.
Today, Massey is one of New Zealand’s largest universities with around 36,000 students enrolled in one of its three campuses, as well as the ‘virtual’ distance learning campus. The three campuses are well established and offer rigorous academic programmes which are complementary to the campus location.
The University is organised into 30 institutes, schools and departments which reside under 5 academic colleges: Business, creative Arts, Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Sciences. Together the colleges offer more than 200 programmes of study and in excess of 5000 classes, which are delivered by the robust multi-campus and multi-modal structure.
Massey has witnessed more than a 40 percent rise in the number of PhDs in the past 10 years, with over 1,700 research masterate students and over 1,000 doctoral students. Massey’s success is further illustrated by Ako Aotearoa – New Zealand’s first and only centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence, and by its notable achievement in producing the highest number of completed research degrees within New Zealand.
Internationally, Massey University continues to be ranked among the top three universities in New Zealand. Academic staff in many fields are internationally renowned, and leading- edge research is being undertaken across the academic 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 its focus on technology and business is also meeting new international demands.
Amongst Massey University’s many international partners is china’s prestigious Peking University. other key strategic research alliances include membership of the greater Mekong Subregion Tertiary Education consortium, alongside leading institutions and universities from New Zealand, Australian cambodia, laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Yunnan Province of china.
