Study Options
Students who successfully complete the required undergraduate courses at HZAU can enrol directly into the Massey University Bachelor of Animal Science. Students can then graduate after two years of successful full-time study with Massey University (2 years + 2 years).

New Zealand Qualification
Combine your love of animals and science with the only animal science degree available in New Zealand. The Bachelor of Animal Science (BAnSci) is the only degree in New Zealand that focuses entirely on animal science. It is ideal if you are interested in a career that combines your love of science and animals.

Massey University’s animal, agricultural and veterinary science professionals are among the best in the world. They will teach you about the latest developments in animal science. You’ll obtain expertise in genetics and breeding, nutrition and growth, and animal welfare. This degree also offers a speciality in equine.

This degree has a distinct New Zealand flavour and is equivalent to international animal science programmes.

Massey has a number of internationally recognised animal-based research centres including: AL Rae Genetics Centre, Animal Welfare Science and Bioethics Centre, Centre for Feline Nutrition, Equine Parentage Genetic Services Centre, Equine Research Centre, International Sheep Research Centre, Monogastric Research Centre and the Working Dog Centre.

Our proud record dates back to 1927 when we offered New Zealand’s first degrees in agriculture. Massey University is home to the only animal science team in New Zealand and one of the largest in Australasia. As a Massey University animal science student, you will benefit from our internationally recognised capability and leadership in these areas. Practical components of the programme are taught on site at our sheep, beef and dairy farms and at our feline and canine facilities and state of the art teaching laboratories.
