Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand)

Victoria University of Wellington (Victoria) was established in 1897 in Wellington, New Zealand. Victoria University of Wellington plays a leading role in shaping New Zealand’s future by:

  • adding significantly to the knowledge and understanding of natural phenomena, society, culture and technology through research, teaching and interdisciplinary perspectives
  • engaging with local, national and international communities in creating, disseminating and applying knowledge that has scholarly or societal impact
  • developing graduates with skills in leadership, communication and critical and creative thinking.

Victoria is home to the Victoria Plus Programme, which provides a learning framework for students who make a significant contribution to volunteer and student support work in the University. The first programme of its kind in New Zealand, the Victoria Plus Programme is an extra-curricular programme where students volunteer, engage in service to the University and actively lead in clubs or societies. It is a way of helping the community, networking and personal development. Successful completion of this leadership programme leads to an award certificate and ceremony, and is acknowledged on students’ academic transcripts.
