Welcome to the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Victoria. You, our student, are very important to us. We are here to help and support you through your studies in whatever way we can. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and approachable team.
In your first year, you may have questions and concerns that you think are too trivial to raise. We want you to know that nothing related to your studies at Victoria is too small or too big for us. We may be able to solve your problem directly, or else source help or information from within our Faculty or from Central Services. Whatever it is, it’s our job to help you through to a good solution.
We look forward to seeing you progress to postgraduate studies. As you advance in your studies, your questions and concerns may become more complex, but will be no less important to us. We will still be there to assist you.
Māori or Pacific student are encouraged to join the Āwhina whānau, where you can access mentoring and extra support for your studies in a whānau environment.
