How distance learning works

Over the last 50 years, more than a quarter of a million New Zealanders have extended an interest, retrained for a career - or bettered one - by studying at Massey University through distance learning. A growing number of students living overseas are also choosing to study at Massey.

International students wishing to study via distance learning should in the first instance contact the International Office for advice.
