Massey University Palmerston North Admissions
Massey University Palmerston North Admission:-
Following is all the information you may need about Massey University Palmerston Graduate and Undergraduate Admission.
Massey University Palmerston North Undergraduate Admission:
Massey University includes a preferential admission scheme in its policies for admission to undergraduate qualifications for domestic students. This scheme assists the University to manage its enrolments if courses are over-subscribed, but it is likely that most applicants will be offered a place in their qualification of choice.
Your application will be assessed as follows:-
•Assessment of eligibility for university entrance through NCEA Level 3, University Entrance examination or another recognised admission method explained below;
•Assessment of a rank score, based on educational background, using the methods explained below. We will calculate a rank score for you;
•Assessment against the specific requirements for selection if any (eg assessment of your portfolio of work for the Bachelor of Design with Honours).
•If you are under 20 years of age you will be given preference if you gain university entrance and score equal to or above the Preferential Entry Score of 120 points and meet the specific requirements for selection where required. If you are 20 years of age or older, and the University must make selection decisions because your qualification of choice has limited places and is over-subscribed, the assessments outlined above will be used to make those selection decisions.
•However, Massey University may give preference to students from under-represented groups when making selections into qualifications.
Students who achieve admission to university with a rank score lower than the Preferential Entry Score, or who have no rank score, are still eligible to apply, and it is anticipated that most will be admitted to a qualification. If there are more applicants for a qualification than can be accommodated, the rank score may be used, together with any stated selection criteria for the course concerned, to prioritise applicants or to determine whether a place can be offered in an alternative qualification.
