Victoria University of Wellington is a research-led university with high standards of teaching that attracts exceptional staff and students from around the world. As a capital city university, Victoria has strong links with government departments, international agencies, industries, regional and local government, iwi and environmental organisations, as well as some of New Zealand’s major research institutes. The University also has extensive collaborative and student exchange links with renowned universities throughout the Pacific, Asia, North and South America, and Europe. Victoria University is characterised by the depth, consistency and effectiveness of our culture of domestic and international engagement. We aim to produce graduates whose learning has been developed inside and outside of the classroom, experientially, and informed by a global perspective. Founded in 1897, Victoria University of Wellington is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most prestigious tertiary institutions with a proud tradition of academic excellence. Victoria has nine faculties, seven of which conduct teaching and research: Architecture and Design, Education, Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences, Law, Science and Victoria Business School. These faculties are divided into schools, many of which are closely aligned with the University’s numerous research centres and institutes. The Faculty of Graduate Research is responsible for the administration of all PhD students, and the virtual faculty Toihuarewa is a forum for Māori academic issues at Victoria and ensures appropriate Māori content in Victoria’s teaching and research programmes. The University operates from several sites in Wellington, as well as its home on its Kelburn Campus, including the Te Aro Campus in the centre of Wellington’s creative Cuba quarter, which is the home of the architecture and design schools, and the Pipitea Campus, near Parliament and the courts, which is home to the University’s schools specialising in the study of law, government, commerce and management. We also have specialist facilities including the Graduate School of Nursing and Midwifery based at Wellington Hospital, and the Coastal Ecology Laboratory on Wellington’s South Coast. In addition, the University teaches internationally, offering English language and commerce courses at the University of Economics’ Campus in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
