How does exchange work?

Student exchange allows you to:

  • Study overseas for one or two semesters at one of Massey's partner universities.
  • Pay your regular Massey tuition fees (60 credits per semester).
  • Continue to receive your StudyLink loan and/or allowances.
  • Earn Massey credit for the courses you study overseas.
  • All our partners offer courses in English.
  • Enjoy an overseas experience without delaying the completion of your degree.

Who is eligible?

Student Exchange is open to domestic, international and distance students from all Massey subject areas except for Construction, Nursing, Social Work and Veterinary Science due to the structure of these degrees.

To be considered for the Exchange Programme, undergraduate students must:

  • Be enrolled in a Bachelor or Bachelor with Honours (360 - 480 credits.)
  • Expect to complete one year (120 credits) of study at Massey prior to departing on exchange.  You can apply for exchange before you've met this requirement.
  • Have a 5.0 (B) grade point average across all your Massey courses.

At least 30 credits at the 300 level in your major and 15 credits at the 300 level in your minor must be completed at Massey.  Your other 300 level credits can be earned while on exchange.

Your grade point average must continue to meet the minimum requirement until you depart for your exchange.

requirements for Master's students
