Victoria University of Wellington
English Name: Victoria University of Wellington
Region: Oceania
Country/Region: New Zealand
Found Year: 1897
Address: P O Box 600

Established in 1897, Victoria University of Wellington is New Zealand’s top ranked university for intensity of high-quality research (in the 2018 national Performance-Based Research Fund).

As a capital city university, Wellington has strong links with government departments and agencies, international agencies, industries, regional and local government, indigenous and environmental organisations, as well as some of New Zealand’s major research institutes.

The ‘civic university’ tradition on which the University was founded has been reinvigorated in recent years with the global outlook of a modern capital city, redefining Wellington as a global-civic university. As such, Wellington is committed to civil society and global citizenship and to preparing critically and culturally informed, globally confident, and civic minded graduates.

Wellington’s city-wide campus has three main sites—the Pipitea campus is home to the Wellington School of Business and Government and the Faculty of Law. The Kelburn campus is the University’s support and administrative centre, heart of the first-year experience at the University, and home to the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Engineering, Education and Health. The Wellington Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation is housed at the Te Aro campus.

The University hosts more than 40 research centres conducting world-leading research in areas ranging from climate change and carbohydrate chemistry to engineering and applied physics. In addition it is home to the Adam Art Gallery - Te Pātaka Toi, which presents a year-round programme of exhibitions, events and publications, the International Institute of Modern Letters, which hosts the University’s Creative Writing programme and has seen many of its alumni establish successful writing careers, and the New Zealand School of Music, the country’s preeminent tertiary institution for music study.

Wellington University has over 100 active global partnerships and about half of the University’s 1100 academic staff are from overseas. The University’s alumni network numbers more than 120,000 and are located in over 100 countries.

There are more than 22,000 students studying at Wellington who have access to outstanding facilities and services and a globally recognised faculty, along with 140 student exchange partnerships, 180 different clubs and a robust leadership programme. The University is focused on producing graduates whose learning has been developed inside and outside of the classroom, experientially, and informed by a global perspective.

The city of Wellington sits on a stunning natural harbour and is surrounded by lush green hills. It is the vibrant capital city of New Zealand, providing a bustling food scene, key political decision making and a cultural hub for the arts. Wellington regularly ranks as one of the most liveable cities in the world (Deutsche Bank Quality of Life Survey).
