CONTENTS


Amongst New Zealand universities, Massey is unique. Throughout its more than 80-year history Massey has played a defining role in the development of New Zealand through its ground-breaking research, commitment to innovation and close links with communities and industry. Mirroring New Zealand’s development from a primarily agrarian economy to a modern mixed-economy global competitor, Massey was established as an agricultural college in Palmerston North in 1927 and awarded university status in 1964. The Massey Albany campus was established during dynamic growth in the 1990s, and in 1998 Massey’s national portfolio was completed with the addition of the world-class School of Design and Conservatorium of Music in central Wellington.

Today, Massey is one of New Zealand’s largest universities with around 36,000 students enrolled in one of its three campuses, as well as the ‘virtual’ distance learning campus. The three campuses are well established and offer rigorous academic programmes which are complementary to the campus location. The University is organised into 30 institutes, schools and departments which reside under 5 academic Colleges: Business, Creative Arts, Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Sciences. Together the Colleges offer more than 200 programmes of study and in excess of 5000 classes, which are delivered by the robust multi-campus and multi-modal structure.

Massey has witnessed more than a 40 percent rise in the number of PhDs in the past 10 years, with over 1,700 research masterate students and over 1,000 doctoral students. Massey’s success is further illustrated by Ako Aotearoa – New Zealand’s first and only Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence, and by its notable achievement in producing the highest number of completed research degrees within New Zealand. Internationally, Massey University continues to be ranked among the top three universities in New Zealand. Academic staff in many fields are internationally renowned, and leadingedge research is being undertaken across the academic colleges often in collaboration with other universities, research institutions and industry. Massey has a proud record of using this expertise to work with developing countries, and its focus on technology and business is also meeting new international demands.

Offshore Delivery and Joint Ventures

The University is increasing its offshore delivery through the selective launching of key degree programmes, including: - Massey’s Bachelor of Aviation Management: Implemented in partnership with the Singapore Aviation Academy, and delivered in South East Asia - Postgraduate Dispute Resolution programmes: Delivered in Thailand, in partnership with Khon Kaen University. - Massey’s Bachelor of Food Technology: Recently implemented in partnership with the Singapore Ministry of Education, and located on the Singapore Polytechnic campus and catering for Asia’s growing demand for food technologists.

International Alliances

Amongst Massey University’s many international partners is China’s prestigious Peking University. Other key strategic research alliances include membership of the Greater Mekong Subregion Tertiary Education Consortium, alongside leading institutions and universities from New Zealand, Australian Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Yunnan Province of China.

English Language Study

Paper Credits

Students whose first language is not English, will be required to provide evidence of their proficiency in English to study at Massey University. For students whose English proficiency is not sufficient for a particular programme, may be advised to take an intensive English language course at the Centre for University Preparation and English Language Studies. For more details on English language programmes, please refer to page 34 or visit the Massey website http://english.massey.ac.nz

Each Massey paper carries an associated credit value, indicating its contribution towards the qualification being studied. In general the standard undergraduate paper is 15 credits.

Admission and Enrolment

International students need to meet both an academic and English requirement for admission into a specific programme at Massey. For details on the admission and enrolment process, please refer to page 48. Alternatively, please visit the International Office website at http://international.massey.ac.nz Full-time Study

Full-time students typically study 60 credits (4 papers) per semester, or 120 credits (8 papers) per year, and this pace enables the degree qualification to be completed within the specified timeframe. For example, a Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS) 3-year degree course requires students to complete 360 credits in total to graduate. Papers

Papers (known as classes/units/ modules) are the building blocks of a degree. Introductory papers are at 100-level, increasing to 200-level, 300-level, 400-level in subsequent semesters or years. Each Massey University paper has a six-figure code to distinguish the subject and level, e.g. 152.261, where ‘152’ denotes the subject Management, and ‘2’ shows it is a 200-level paper.

The credit value indicates the time that a student might be reasonably expected to spend on a paper, including all lectures, laboratories, tutorials, visits and study time, in order to meet the assessment requirements satisfactorily. Converted into hours per week, this is referred to as a paper’s effective weekly hours. For a standard undergraduate (15 credit) single-semester paper, around 12.5 hours of study time per week could be reasonably expected. Therefore, an equivalent 15 credit double-semester paper would require a commitment of around 6.25 hours per week. Major

A major is a combination of set papers that make up the specialisation within a degree. A double major is available in some degrees and requires specialisation in two combinations of papers. For example, the Bachelor of Arts with two majors – Business Psychology and Chinese, is one possibility. Teaching Methods

Lectures are the main method of presenting information at undergraduate level. In addition, students are expected to participate in any associated tutorials, laboratories and practical fieldwork. Self-study and recommended readings are also an integral part of the learning requirements. Class Timetable

Most lectures and tutorials are scheduled in two-hour blocks, between 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

An hourly 10-minute recess enables students to move on to their next classroom. The public class timetable can be viewed at http://publictimetable. massey.ac.nz Assessment

Assessment for most papers includes various assignments, essays, tutorials and laboratory work throughout the semester, as well as a one three-hour final examination which is typically 4060% of the final grade. At the start of the semester, an Administration and Study Guide is provided to enrolled students which clearly defines the learning objectives and assessment requirements. Massey University has a 9.0 grade point average scale and letter grades and percentages are used when marking coursework. The passing grade is C which equates to 50%. Learning Support

Learning Support Centres on each Massey campus provide a series of workshops and individual tutorials for those students requiring additional assistance with assignment writing, note taking skills or exam preparation. In addition, academics are available, both directly and via email, to address any student enquiries relating to lecture or tutorial content. For other student support services, please refer to page 42. PG

Student Profile

Ryan Jolie Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Primary) Ryan Jolie from Windsor, Ontario, Canada decided to study at the Massey, Manawatu campus because of his interest in the computer science teachable subject, and also for the city’s provincial environment and accessibility to central New Zealand; which proved to be perfect for his travel aspirations. The Graduate Diploma of Teaching programme was rewarding. He learnt how to teach students the process of learning, not just remembering or reiterating materials but how to develop a student’s skills for finding information and processing how they can apply that knowledge to the current situation. Ryan also discovered that the curriculum in New Zealand schools has a strong social context. Teachers aim to develop the social awareness of each student to get them involved in group teamwork in order to foster a sense of belonging and community.

lay the groundwork for possible future New Zealand participation in Antarctic and space-based astronomy. The Institute of Natural Resources is developing new techniques for understanding and monitoring geologic mass-flows. The new monitoring systems will be tested in the lab as well as at New Zealand’s Mount Ruapehu and a debris flood-prone area in Indonesia, and results will form a globally unique dataset to enable the testing of evolving scientific hypotheses of sediment-water flow mechanics. The Institute of Fundamental Sciences is studying the mechanisms of protein interaction linked to prostate disease and neurodegenerative disease. The researchers have already found that cancer cells can be killed without affecting the surrounding tissue; they are now investigating the possibility of drugs designed to either inhibit (in heart and brain) or trigger (in tumours) apoptosis.

New Zealand /Aotearoa NEW ZEALAND IS A MODERN, TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED, GLOBALLY-COMPETITIVE NATION OFFERING INTERNATIONALLY-RECOGNISED UNIVERSITY EDUCATION WITHIN AN UNIQUE CULTURAL AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. Young Nation with a Rich History

Competitive Global Trader

With little more than a thousand years of human settlement since the Polynesians first reached New Zealand in about 800 A.D., New Zealand has a rich and fascinating history, reflecting Mäori and European heritage. The first European contact occurred in 1769 with the landing of Captain James Cook. British sovereignty was claimed in 1840 following the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, considered a founding national document. In 1907, New Zealand’s independence and separate identity were further recognized when its status was changed from being a Great Britain colony to an independent dominion.

New Zealand in the twenty-first century is a modern country with well-developed industrialized, free-market economy competing in the global marketplace. With almost 20% of the country’s output exported, New Zealand is heavily dependent on trade, its principal export industries being agriculture, horticulture, fishing and forestry. Major export partners are Australia, the USA, Japan, China and Germany. Modern, Multi-Cultural Society

New Zealand’s unique and dynamic culture blends a fusion of European, Mäori, Pacific and Asian influences.

New Zealand Quick Facts

• Capital city: Wellington • Population: 4 million people (14 per square km) • Largest city: Auckland, population of 1,318,700 • Official languages: English, Mäori • Currency: New Zealand dollar • Government: Constitutional monarchy, gained independence from Britain in 1907 • First country to give women the vote • Area: 288,680 square kilometres • 6000 kilometres of coastline nowhere is more than 120km from the coast • New Zealand has the world’s largest fightless parrot (kakapo), the oldest reptile (tuatara), the biggest earthworms, the smallest bats (the only native land mammals), the heaviest insect (a weta), and many of the world’s oldest trees, rarest birds, insects, and plants.


New Zealand /Aotearoa continued The population comprises of 75% European ethnicity, 14% of Mäori descent (the “tangata whenua” or indigenous people), 6% Asian and 5% of Pacific Island origin. The country has a high standard of living and consistently ranked highly in international quality of life indexes. New Zealand society is diverse, sophisticated, and multicultural, and the honesty, friendliness and openness of New Zealanders or “Kiwis”, is world-renowned.

New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful landscape includes vast mountain chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiords and lush rainforests.

New Zealand / Aotearoa

New Zealand university education was established in 1870 and has a similar structure and tradition to the British model. Today, there are eight statefunded universities in New Zealand, offering a broad range of subjects with different specialisations. New Zealand university students enjoy a personalised approach to their learning, where people are recognised and valued for their individuality; and an applied learning environment where theory and practice interrelate. New Zealand Bachelor’s degrees are recognised for enrolment in postgraduate programmes at universities throughout the world.

Quality Education

New Zealand education is increasingly international in character, driven by trends which include the ICT revolution, employment markets transcending national borders, and a globally-mobile population of students, teaching staff and researchers. The New Zealand education system is based on guiding principles including quality-assured and portable education qualifications, and the provision of flexible pathways for study. National policies and quality assurance provide continuity and consistency across New Zealand’s education system. The New Zealand Government-administered Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students is designed to ensure that a consistent, high standard of pastoral care is provided to all international students.
