Massey University College of Creative Arts Student Experience Day Round 2

Massey College of Creative Arts are now offering another Student Experience Day #2 on Monday 17th June 2019, due to the huge interest in the May CoCA Student Experience Day and workshops filling up so quickly.

There are up to $150 travel subsidies available for 15 x students from outside of the Wellington region to help with flight costs to travel to attend the day.  Any students wishing to receive a subsidy would need to send through a detailed email to Belinda Weepu: stating why they should be awarded this subsidy and what they know about Massey University’s College of Creative Arts. 

Students who miss out on these subsidies are still welcome to register to attend.  However, these students will need to pay their own travel expenses.  Massey will be picking up all students from out of Wellington from the airport on the morning of Friday 10 May and arranging for them to return back to the airport after 5pm.

Only Year 12’s and 13’s should register for this day.  There will be another opportunity to attend a similar day, Immersion Day (Monday 8 July), in the July school holidays so any students that miss out are welcome to register to attend that day instead.  Registrations for Immersion Day will be open from mid-May.


Workshops offered are:
