Undergraduate
Degrees
New Zealand universities generally follow the British model of three-year undergraduate (bachelors’)
degrees with an increasing level of specialisation and difficulty in each year. A degree almost always
includes subjects other than the major or specialist subject, but the major subject is usually studied in
every year of the degree.
