Special Application Instructions


Massey Application 

In addition to completing the ISEP application, students must also submit a separate Massey University application. Missing or unverified documentation will result in delays in student placement; ISEP, therefore, recommends that applicants enclose the following documentation with their ISEP application, wherever possible.

Massey is unable to issue your unconditional offer, or formalize your Massey placement, without the documents listed above. Incomplete applications can therefore incur processing delays. 

Massey University cannot recognize unverified copies of birth certificates, passports and academic transcripts. These documents must be officially verified by the applicant’s home university, study abroad coordinator or a notary public. Therefore when submitting original copies of passports and transcripts it is recommended that students make a second copy for Massey and get the above-mentioned authorities to verify each of these copies individually. Verified copies must either:

a) include a handwritten statement: "I ........, certify that this is a true copy of the original" (signed & dated by verifier), or 

b) be stamped: "Verified by _____" (signed amd dated by verifier)
