Massey University Chancellor, Chris Kelly said the university would place more emphasis on its agricultural and veterinary courses rather than its fine arts and business courses as it wanted to regain its name as an agricultural university. Mr Kelly added that from next year, the university’s veterinary and other agricultural courses would have more agricultural aspects in them from the first year rather than from the second year. Mr Kelly said he believed there should only be one agricultural university in New Zealand, and given what was happening at Lincoln university, there was a possibility that this could be the case in the future.
