Orientation at Massey University

Orientation is your opportunity to prepare for student life. You will be able to attend events, activities and workshops designed for your stage of study. Specific sessions will be available for postgraduate and undergraduate students.

You will learn critical information about your programme, student services and campus facilities.

Getting involved is the best way to start your student experience. It's a great way to meet people and make new friends.

International students and Study Abroad students

Orientation is an important time for all new international and Study Abroad students. You can attend all events and workshops during Orientation but you must attend the International Enrolment and Welcome programme held on your study campus. You will learn about Massey, the city your campus is located and New Zealand.

You will receive an email with more detailed information about the compulsory sessions closer to the start of semester.
