My semester abroad at Victoria University of Wellington through Richmond’s exchange program was a very unique time for me, both academically and personally. I was able to explore a new university, a new city, and a new part of the world while still productively completing my degree through Richmond University in London. Victoria University of Wellington is an impressive university with a wide range of courses and resources, as well as an active student life. Its campuses are lovely and I encourage you to both get involved with the school and explore Wellington, which is a lively, creative, and friendly city. Traveling opportunities and experiences in New Zealand are plentiful, especially when it comes to gorgeous landscapes, culture, and adventures. I hold this experience as very valuable, especially since I was able to have this opportunity in correlation to my studies at Richmond.
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
Victoria University of Wellington is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most prestigious tertiary institutions with a proud tradition of academic excellence. It is particularly well known for its programmes in law, the humanities, and some scientific disciplines, and offers a broad range of other courses. Being located in New Zealand’s capital city, the University plays an important role by contributing to public policy in local and global issues. New Zealand’s only School of Government undertakes teaching and research on public policy and public administration/management. In recent years, Victoria has had to expand out of its original campus in Kelburn, and new campuses have been set up in Te Aro (architecture and design), Pipitea (opposite Parliament, housing the law, and commerce and administration schools) and Karori (education). The Wellington College of Education, established in 1880, merged with the University to become its revived Faculty of Education on 1 January 2005.
