Bachelor of Arts Student Engagement (BASE+)

The BASE+ project focuses on enhancing student experience within the  College of Humanities and Social Sciences.  We recognise that there are many factors which contribute to a successful university experience. Our aim is to support our BA and CoHSS students as they learn to manage these factors, and navigate their BA journey.

BASE+ is here to work alongside you. We offer a range personal, academic and professional developmental opportunities,  which can contribute to  a successful learning experience. 

As a team and a wider BASE+ community we value; establishing connections, creating a sense of belonging, developing a unique BA culture, encouraging ownership, and inspiring active participation.

Some of the opportunities you will have access to as part of the BASE+ community include:

  • Direct learner coaching from BASE+ Facilitators
  • Membership to the BASE+ Common Room (on Stream, Facebook, On-Campus)
  • Access to other BA students who care about supporting others
  • Study management tools, tailored to the BA degree
  • Recommendations and tips on navigating Massey University processes and services
  • Mentoring and leadership opportunities
  • Prizes and competitions

As a starting point we’d like to introduce you to the following resources, or invite you to contact us at anytime.

The BA Starter Pack has been developed to give you confidence and ensure you have everything you need to make your decision to study the Bachelor of Arts as stress-free as possible.
