Performing Arts

A Bachelor of Arts (BA) is a degree rewarded to students who complete an undergraduate program that typically lasts four years. This type of degree can be focused on the sciences, liberal arts, or a mixture of the two. 

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses ‒ that of the North and South Islands ‒ and numerous smaller islands. Overseas students need to have a student visa and a reasonable level of cash to spend in order to undertake a course of study at a New Zealand based educational institution. New Zealand educational institutions will inform the appropriate immigration authorities if a student ceases to attend their enrolled courses, who may then suspend or cancel that student's visa. Educational institutions often also exchange this enrollment and attendance data electronically with other government agencies responsible for providing student assistance.

You will also engage in cultural studies with an emphasis on historical developments in New Zealand and overseas. The third year is a structured opportunity to deepen your understanding of media communication, working and communicating in teams as well as educational aspects of the industry.
