Campus visits and course planning

Admission pathways

It has been another extraordinary year, and we understand students’ anxiety around assessment and achieving University Entrance (UE). We want to reassure you that we will be working with students individually to help them achieve their goals of studying at university. If you have any students who are worried about gaining UE this year and who are keen to study at the University, please encourage them to apply before results come out in January. We can then communicate with them about their options for admission if they do not gain UE. Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington will have a number of pathways available to students who do not achieve UE, helping students to begin their study in a supportive environment. More information on these pathways will be available on our website soon.
