Review of Victoria University of Wellington

It's very relaxed and slow paced. Classes are very lenient and lecturers are more than happy to help students. Individualism is very abundant and student freedom is a big part of student life.

It's very relaxed and slow paced. Classes are very lenient and lecturers are more than happy to help students. Individualism is very abundant and student freedom is a big part of student life. There isn't much a sense of school pride but there is pride in the cosmopolitan lifestyle in Wellington. Walking up the hill to the university is very challenging but rewarding, even more rewarding is making it to your classes when there is torrential rain. show less
