Academic and research excellence

Massey University has a long and proud tradition of academic and research excellence. As New Zealand’s only truly national university, the University foster and push for positive change.

Once students have completed the University of Auckland’s Foundation Studies Certificate programme at Taylors College in Auckland, they can choose to progress to an undergraduate degree at Massey University, subject to meeting the entry requirements for the specific university course.

“Massey University epitomises the creativity, innovation and connectedness that New Zealand is renowned for. Our campuses in three major cities and our range of programmes mean we offer you the ability to tailor your study to meet your needs and at the same time connect closely with industry, professional organisations and local communities. I warmly invite you to be part of our diverse and stimulating student community.”

The Foundation Studies Certificate programme

This programme offers university preparation for international students who need additional English language and academic support to progress to university study. Students can choose from the standard and intensive programme lengths depending on their academic grades and English language level.

Pre-Foundation and the English Language Preparation

These programmes are registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and will continue to be offered by Study Group NZ Limited trading as Taylors College.

Taylors College is the trading name of Study Group NZ Limited. The Foundation Studies Certificate is owned by the University of Auckland and delivered by Study Group NZ Limited trading as Taylors College on behalf of the University of Auckland.
