In 2022, Massey University will offer the first year of the Bachelor of Design with Honours, Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours and Bachelor of Creative Media Production online for international students who are unable to come to New Zealand due to Covid-19.
We have developed a selection of classes that are designed to be delivered online, to allow international students to begin their studies, and then come to New Zealand when the borders reopen to international students.
The College of Creative Arts is offering a selection of first year Design, Creative Media Production and Fine Arts classes online in 2022 for international students.
The complete list of Summer School courses is not yet final. We will make sure to offer the courses required for first year online students to meet their degree requirements.
Yes, these courses will count as either core courses or electives towards your first year and major study. We will offer courses over Summer School at the end of 2022 that will allow you to take your major prerequisites and transition into Year 2 in 2023.
The programme starts Semester 1 2022, in the week beginning 28 February 2022.
