Victoria University of Wellington


Victoria is a thriving community of almost 25,000 people. Most are students of all nationalities, from all walks of life – who have come to learn in the vital, open environment that only university study can offer.

Victoria College was founded through an Act of Parliament in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, and named in her honour. For the first few years, lectures took place in rented accommodation in the city while a debate raged over where the new University’s home should be built. Eventually, the College Council decided to build on ‘six vertical acres’ in Kelburn, the site of the Kelburn Campus today.

Victoria University of Wellington is committed to being an environmentally responsible organisation. As well as leading climate change research and teaching, we are actively working towards reducing our own environmental impact with support from our staff and students.

You may have gone to Victoria straight from school or be well established in your career, you may be a local or international student. Whatever your situation, Victoria wants to ensure the best outcome for you.

If this is your first degree, Victoria University of Wellington offers programmes across a huge range of subjects.
