Studying at the University has challenged a lot of my preconceived ideas and notions, in that I’ve had to examine them and defend them in order to figure out what I really think.

Choosing law

"When I was thinking about what I wanted to study, there were two main questions I asked myself: what am I good at and what am I interested in? For me, law addressed both of those things."

Study a Bachelor of Laws

More than just study

"Victoria University of Wellington is so much more than an education institution. It’s the hub for my whole life. It’s where I study, it’s where I work, it’s where I socialise and I wouldn’t have it any other way."

Student life

A diverse culture

"The university community is a cross-section of New Zealand society. Since coming here I've been exposed to a whole range of different backgrounds."

Make connections

Finding my direction

"Victoria University of Wellington has the best law school in New Zealand. In terms of where it’s located, you’re in Government Buildings in Wellington, in the heart of law-making in New Zealand."

Learn from the best

Shaping my future

"My journey at university has been one of exposure to a wide range of people, places and ideas, and I’ve been able to refine who I am as a person and the direction that I want to move in the future."
