Working to Maximise Course Quality

Massey University has a virtual monopoly on top-shelf university distance education within New Zealand. For most New Zealanders, it is the only financially accessible way to earn a high-ranking degree online. However, parts of Massey University’s distance teaching remain a work in progress. In some cases, there are issues which can take a large toll on student engagement and success.

It’s our job as your student association to ensure you have the most successful and enjoyable journey in your time with Massey.

This part of the website is dedicated to helping you, as a Massey Distance student, to know what to look for in your chosen courses. We at M@D are working continually to inform and empower you all, as our fellow students, to find the best possible study pathways.

In cases where courses are still suffering issues, we have a robust advocacy process where we lobby the University to get these issues sorted. However, for us to do this, we need to be made aware, and encourage you to visit our helpdesk and file a support request so we can get this on our queue.

In this section of the website, we are building up a system to allow students to post reviews of courses they have done and are doing, and to learn the things to look out for.
