As an actress wanting to study, Massey University’s distance programme was the obvious choice. While sitting exams overseas in places like the New Zealand Embassy in Paris is not the norm for most students, it was just one of many ways that Massey’s distance offerings was able to cater to my circumstances. I was able to gain my degree without having to worry about trying to attend lectures that didn’t fit with my filming schedule, and I still had support every step of the way.
I really enjoyed and appreciated my study experience with Massey. Their systems made correspondence learning as manageable as possible. I could access the impressive library services 24/7, and helpful knowledgeable advice from the staff at the contact centre was only a phone call away.
Acting is my dream career, it takes me all over the world and I’m glad I was able to gain a degree that can open new avenues and expand my abilities. My BA gave me skills in analysing and understanding texts, which is incredibly helpful in what I do. At the moment, I am working on a television show in Sydney and one day I’d love to be able to put my French papers to use and perform a role in French.
