Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington sits across three campuses in New Zealand’s vibrant capital city. The university’s central location gives students access to diverse national organisations, including in politics, government, culture and heritage, the arts and filmmaking industry, and business and science communities. Wellington is a compact city where students can easily explore nature trails, beaches, galleries, museums, and events. It is also multicultural, safe, and friendly, and has a reputation for great food and coffee — it regularly ranks as one of the world’s most liveable cities.
The university has a diverse community that welcomes international students from around 100 countries, and offers students holistic support through a range of wellbeing and learning services. These include a specialised international team that is dedicated to supporting students during their studies.
Students are encouraged to join one of the university’s many clubs and societies, from special-interest groups to sports teams. The free Wellington International Leadership Programme provides a great opportunity to develop leadership and networking skills, while the International Buddy Programme helps international students meet new people and settle into university life.
