As a Massey student you may be able to spend some time studying at a university overseas which will still count towards your degree. We have world-class partner universities in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Student exchange is a reciprocal programme so the number of places available for each partner university is determined by the number of Massey students going on exchange to that university.
If you are currently studying overseas but would like to come and spend a semester or two at Massey there are opportunities through our Study Abroad programme. Find out about exchange partners and opportunities at Massey.Study Abroad

I was introduced to computer programming in my first year at Massey, and it has captured me since then. In fact, I still use the computer programming we learned in Chris Scogings' 101 course every single day! I'm now working in one of the big hot areas in the tech world right now - augmented reality.Anton Gerdelan

Physics always struck me as the most interesting of the sciences and the majority of scientists who I really look up to are all physicists. Studying at Massey was worthwhile as there was a lot of learning about things that are used in the real world.Motoko Kakubayashi
