Your Offer of Study

To confirm your enrolment you need to accept your Offer of Study and provide some documentation.

Receiving an offer

When we receive your application to enrol, we will send you an Offer of Study. Your offer is an official list of the qualifications and courses that Victoria University of Wellington is offering you a place. It will also include details of what they will cost you.

You should receive this within 4 weeks of applying, sometimes longer depending on the programme.

Conditional Offer of Study

If you are still waiting for your NCEA results, or in some other circumstances, you will receive a Conditional Offer of Study. A Conditional Offer will tell you what results you need to achieve or other information you need to supply.

Waiting on an Offer of Study

If you have applied only for open-entry courses and programmes and your Offer of Study hasn’t arrived after 4 weeks, email the Enrolment Office or freecall 0800 04 04 04.

Accepting an Offer Of Study

In most cases, you can accept your Offer of Study online by following the instructions in the email we sent you. You may be asked to finalise your programme in person. Your Offer of Study will tell you where to go or who to see.

When you accept an Offer of Study, you are accepting a place in the courses or programmes offered to you and agreeing to abide by the statutes and policies of Victoria University of Wellington. You become liable for payment of fees by the due date.

Waiting on NCEA results

If you have University Entrance and the Guaranteed Entry Score, you will automatically be accepted into your programme.

If you have University Entrance but did not achieve the Guaranteed Entry Score, you may be put on a waiting list. When a place becomes available in the programme you chose, it will be offered to you.

Making changes to your programme

If you want to change the programmes and courses you’ve selected after you receive your Offer of Study, you can accept 'with changes'. You will be given a limited time to accept with changes. Refer to your offer for the due date.

If you make changes to your programme of study, this may change your fees, or affect whether you’re eligible for student loans or allowances—make sure you check.

Completing your enrolment

Once you return your offer, and any conditions and requirements have been met, you will receive a Confirmation of Study. This will confirm the details of your programme of study, showing any changes you may have made to your Offer of Study.
