Garth Fletcher

I am pleased to welcome you to the School of Psychology. Our school at Victoria University of Wellington is at the forefront of psychology research in New Zealand, and our academics have international reputations. We are passionate about Psychology and we want you to be too.

The School of Psychology offers an extensive range of courses that cover fundamental topics as well as specialist areas, such as clinical psychology, forensic psychology, neuropsychology, and cross-cultural psychology. We have a large and vibrant group of postgraduate students who do cutting-edge research aided by our dedicated staff and excellent facilities.

The School of Psychology is on Victoria University's main Kelburn Campus, close to the city centre. With four Crown Research Institutes and Capital and Coast District Health Boards all within easy reach of campus, Wellington offers tremendous opportunities for academic and applied scientific research and clinical experience in psychology.

We want to make your experiences in Psychology enjoyable and informative, and help you achieve your goals and career aspirations. It may even change the way you think about human nature and behavior. University education can be, and often is, a transformative experience. We hope you take advantage of the many opportunities available from our school and university - who knows where it may lead you.
