Massey University

Massey University has grown from a small agricultural college in Palmerston North to become New Zealand's largest residential university. We are spread across three campuses and have the most distance students.

Massey University is the only university in New Zealand offering degrees in aviation and veterinary medicine. Massey's veterinary school is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association and is recognised in the United States, Australia, Canada, and Britain. Massey's agriculture programme is the highest-ranked in New Zealand, and 60th in the Quacquarelli Symonds' (QS) 2023 world university subject rankings.

Massey's Bachelor of Aviation (Air Transport Pilot) is an internationally recognised and accredited qualification, is the first non-engineering degree to be recognised by the Royal Aeronautical Society (1998), and has ISO9001-2000 accreditation.
