The Diploma in Science and Technology is a flexible programme that allows you to undertake a shorter course of study at university level than that required by a three year bachelor's degree.
You may elect to have courses passed under the diploma programme credited to a bachelor's degree, provided the courses comply with the regulations of the degree in question.
The Diploma is equivalent to one year of full-time study, but it will often be taken on a part-time basis. The course is open to anyone who has gained admission to Massey University, but in some cases specific courses may require a subject background at level 3 NCEA.
To enrol in the Diploma in Science and Technology you need to have an entrance to university qualification, either through Bursaries and Scholarship Examinations, New Zealand University Entrance, NCEA, Admission with Equivalent Status, Discretionary Entrance or Special Admission.
For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
