Summary

Find Yourself in New Zealand
A semester abroad doesn’t have to keep you from training for your sport.  We can help you return to your home team stronger and faster than when you left.

All our Global Student-Athlete (GSA) tracks combine professional coaching and training with one or two semesters of study.  We provide male and female athletes from any sport with the resources to improve their stamina and fitness.  The conditioning sessions and assessments are scheduled outside your classroom hours so you can keep up with your studies.

Each GSA option is based in the student city of Palmerston North. You will train with the elite sportspeople of the Manawatu region and have opportunities to engage with both professional athletes and New Zealand representatives of your sport.  For more information, visit http://massey.ac.nz/gsa
