Helpful resources to assist you with giving advice to your students on planning school subjects, choosing a degree, course planning, and gaining admission.

Planning degrees and courses

Visit our planning your studies section for information on:

  • Course and degree planning—explains the range of study options from degrees to majors and minors.
  • Career options—helps your students start thinking about what career paths they might want to explore after completing their degree.
  • Planning school subjects—helps students to prepare and consider what subjects they might study at school to help when they come to study at university.

Degree information sheets

Use our degree information sheets when talking to students about the study options at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.

These contain an overview of the degree, a list of recommended school subjects, information on the postgraduate opportunities available, a list of potential careers, degree examples and admission, degree, major, minor, and specialisation requirements for each degree.

Download the planning ahead guidepdf1.4MB to help with choosing the right school subjects.

We have also prepared a pre-requisites guidepdf116.6KB for your reference which states the NCEA standards required for certain courses. Note that these standards are not required for admission to a particular programme—we still offer our introductory courses for these subjects too.
