Whether you’re leaving high school, considering a return to tertiary study or looking to study for the first time, come to our Open Day on Friday 21 August 2020 and explore your study options, catch a sample theatre and talk to staff.

You can also visit Victoria University of Wellington at other times—we offer course planning appointments and campus tours throughout the year.
