Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science presents an exciting range of study options from nanotechnology to submarine volcanoes, the origins of the universe to how we think, and more.

Victoria University has a central place in Wellington, the Science Capital of New Zealand. We make the most of ongoing collaborations with local Crown Research Institutes, healthcare providers and government departments to give our students access to the breadth of opportunities that a career in science offers.
