Study science

Uncover your passions with one of the 30 subjects we offer at the Wellington Faculty of Science.

The Wellington Faculty of Science is proud to offer over 30 subjects from undergraduate to postgraduate level, grouped into a range of qualifications, so that you can opt for a study commitment that's right for you. We welcome students to Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington from all over New Zealand and all over the world.

You can start small and take one course at a time, building up to a graduate diploma, then move onto a degree. Or if you're sure about what you want to do, jump straight into it, whether it's a Bachelor of Science, or a postgraduate degree.

You'll find yourself surrounded by people passionate about science—academic staff who are world leaders in their fields of research bring their expertise to the lecture theatre and the laboratory. Studying science is exciting, challenging, and rewarding, and there is something for everyone at our University.
