Program Description

The University
Massey University’s Albany campus, located near Auckland, New Zealand, is part of one of the country’s most defining universities. Massey is characterized by the applied nature of its teaching and research programs and by its special expertise in the fields of sciences, creative arts, social sciences, education and business. The university prides itself on its openness to students of diverse backgrounds spanning age, geographic location, ethnicity and culture.

The Surrounding Area
Auckland is an international city with a population of over one million people. It is built around a stunning harbor with a bridge connecting the North Shore to the city center. It is New Zealand’s largest urban area with a diverse multi-cultural population and world class features and facilities.

The Albany Campus is part of the North Shore and is usually just a 20 minute drive from the center of Auckland. The Albany campus is part of North Shore city. Within walking distance of the campus is a large shopping center where students can shop and browse, and just down the road is the Albany village with its traditional shops. The campus is surrounded by a wide range of amenities, including numerous cafés, shopping centers, cinema complexes, art galleries, libraries, a performing arts facility, and extensive leisure and sport facilities including the North Harbour Sports Stadium.

The North Shore city region covers 120km of coastline and includes more than 30 sandy swimming beaches. Part of the North Shore’s appeal is that it is just a short drive from the city lights and downtown lifestyle of central Auckland, yet it has a real community feel and beach side character.

North Shore is served by motorway links to Auckland and the International Airport as well as to major rail and ferry terminals. City bus services are efficient, well developed and relatively inexpensive.
