Top Masters Programs in Wellington New Zealand 2017

Master

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Earning a Master requires two years of education after earning a Bachelor. This advanced degree may help students to achieve their educational and professional goals, as the rigors of a Master’s program help train students in the skills and knowledge they need to land the career of their dreams.

 

New Zealand is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty. Kiwi are not only one of the national symbols – the others being the silver fern leaf and koru – but also the name New Zealanders usually call themselves. Overseas students will need to pay the full tuition fees and their own living costs while studying at a New Zealand institution.

A great number of Universities and Colleges are based in Wellington. Victoria University of Wellington has its four campuses in the town. Massey University also owns a campus in Wellington for Business, Technology and Engineering by the name of "Creative Campus". This makes it an ideal place for higher education.

You have regular meetings with your supervisors, and crit sessions with your fellow MDes students, but you are in control of structuring your own time. You generally have two supervisors who are experienced designers in fields related to your research. It is their job to challenge you to take the project as far as you can. Typically, the University will assign you a primary supervisor, and you will get input into who becomes your second supervisor.
