When planning to study abroad it is important to plan well in advance. We encourage you to research the Victoria courses available during the trimester you plan to study at the university using the Online Course Catalogue. Some courses may have additional application requirements e.g. Creative Writing, Music, Architecture and Design. Please contact Victoria International Admissions Team for advice.
We strongly recommend you discuss your proposed study plan with your Academic Adviser at your home university for credit transfer purposes before applying to Victoria University of Wellington.
Complete all sections on the Study Abroad & Exchange Application Form, sign it and courier (we recommend that you use a tracked worldwide courier service) or mail your form and supporting documents to Victoria International by the Application Closing Dates. As a minimum, you must include:

Once your application has been received by Victoria International it will be assessed. If your application is successful you or your study abroad provider/home university will be sent the offer letter and pre-arrival information by email, including your offer status and start date.
After your application has been assessed your Course Selection Form will be sent to the relevant Faculty for the pre-approval process. Once the Faculty has made a decision you or your study abroad provider/home university will be emailed an update from Victoria International.
It is important that you have at least three courses pre-approved. Pre-approval is based on whether you have the appropriate pre-requisites to get in to that course.
Note: If you do not complete the pre-approval process, there is no guarantee that you will be able to enrol in your chosen courses when you arrive in Wellington.
After you have received an unconditional offer of place and have been pre-approved into at least three courses you or your study abroad provider/home university will be sent an email inviting you to enrol online in the courses you have been pre-approved for. Your enrolment will be finalised during International Orientation week in Wellington.
