Why choose Wellington

Victoria University also offers an unparalleled experience for Science Without Borders students looking to study in New Zealand. A culturally thriving and picturesque city, Wellington is a great place to study. As Wellington is geographically situated in the middle of the country, it is well placed for students to easily undertake travel throughout New Zealand.

Cross-cultural perspectives

Victoria was the first New Zealand University to have a marae built on campus. It acknowledges our indigenous culture and is used as a formal place of welcome and a teaching place. In our teaching we are committed to reflecting indigenous perspectives.
