Pasifika orientation

The Pasifika orientation helps Pasifika students prepare for a successful journey. Find out about the events and how we can help you in your time at Victoria.

The Pasifika orientation welcomes all Pasifika students and their families to Victoria University. We provide a week-long programme to transition new students into university studies. We believe Victoria will be your home away from home.
