Massey’s offshore learning centres were officially launched this week with an online “virtual orientation.”
Led by Deputy Vice Chancellor for Students and Global Engagement, Tere McGonagle-Daly, the online orientation linked Massey’s three New Zealand campuses with our four Learning Centres in China located in Beijing; Nanjing; Tianjin and Hainan.
More than 300 Chinese students attended the online orientation, as well as Massey lecturers from Massey Business School, College of Creative Arts, College of Sciences, and College of Humanities and Social Sciences, who will be delivering the various programmes for the students throughout 2022.
Following the online orientation, students were welcome in an on-campus orientation at each of the four universities in China.
Massey Learning Centres (MLC) offer students offshore a campus-like experience where they all live on-campus at one of Massey’s strategic university partners in China, attending Massey classes that are delivered online from New Zealand.
By having groups of students in similar subjects grouped together on campus, they received support from Massey learning advisors, as well as the opportunity to socialise together. Students from one of the Learning Centres in 2021 even formed a ‘Massey-China Basketball Team’ to compete against local Chinese university teams.
