Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.
USAC's partnership with Massey University provides you with a wide array of academic options at the undergraduate and graduate level. You will take regular university classes alongside local students. Qualified students also have the opportunity to enroll in a credit-bearing internship in the field of communication and media. Massey University is AACSB accredited. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by Massey University.
