Enjoy studying in New Zealand’s lively, capital city

Wellington is the vibrant, political, and cultural hub of New Zealand, placed on a beautiful harbor where the Australian and Pacific tectonic plates meet.

This unique combination of place and culture is reflected in the wonderful range of course offerings, and the university is a favorite for both domestic and international students, especially those studying in the areas of film, literature, politics and international relations, gender studies, earth sciences, Maori culture and language, music, theater, and creative writing.

The campus rubs shoulders with parliament, NGOs, key national research and scientific organizations, as well as Weta Workshop (the creators of the Lord of the Rings visual effects), Te Papa (the Museum of NZ), the National Library, and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

Wellington is buzzing with cafes and restaurants, boutique galleries, independent theaters and cinemas. This is a city that prides itself on good coffee and intellectual conversation, and the hilly terrain and unpredictable weather often have our students comparing it to San Francisco.
