Information for New Zealand Citizens

Financing Your Studies

As a New Zealand citizen, you will only pay domestic fees. And while you’re studying outside of New Zealand, you don’t pay GST on the programme fees or non-tuition costs. You are also eligible to apply for:

  • a New Zealand student loan and/or student allowance
  • the Government’s fees-free study scheme.

Individual situations may vary. Contact StudyLink for information about your eligibility. You can check your eligibility for fees-free study at FeesFree.govt.nz with your National Student Number.

Study When It Suits You

Studying online allows you to achieve your educational dreams while you are working, training or raising a family. Our online programmes have been designed to fit around you—watch lectures or read materials wherever you might be, at a time that is suitable to your schedule.

Watch Lectures & Access Resources Online

Massey’s online learning platform, Stream, allows you to learn in a virtual classroom. Depending on your course, you could be using Stream to watch online presentations, interact with lecturers and peers, take quizzes, submit assignments and more. Have greater control of your learning by replaying or re-reading lessons you’re not clear about.

Get Support Wherever You Are

Massey University offers all students a wide range of support services; from advice on choosing what to study or how to access a particular publication, through to confidential counselling support and career advice. Our experienced staff are familiar with working with students who are not in New Zealand and know how important it is to respond clearly and quickly.

Access Quality Learning Resources

Distance learners have online access to a wealth of additional resources and contemporary publications through our award-winning Library.

Study by Socials from Sydney

As a mature aged, distance student, working part-time, with a loving husband, 2 small children, and a Sydney-sized mortgage, studying has its challenges. However, it is within the challenge that I find myself. I find a powerful determination to flourish academically, I find myself breaking down my own insecurities, and ultimately I find a successful student, with endless opportunities.

My Sweet As Story

“To any other kiwis who are living overseas and are considering studying, just do it!”

– Hayley Wise, Bachelor of Business Studies
