International Summer Leadership Camp

This 4-6 week camp at Wellington University aims to help international high school students to develop leadership, interpersonal, and study skills, allowing a smooth transition into university study

Victoria University of Wellington is New Zealand’s top ranked university for intensity of high-quality research (2018 Performance-Based Research Fund). It is the only university to twice top the country's main measure of research excellence and is in the top 2 percent of the world’s 18,000 universities.

International students who are studying at or have just finished high school in New Zealand can join the Victoria University of Wellington on campus for a month-long camp these summer holidays.

This camp aims to develop your leadership, interpersonal, and study skills. For high school graduates, it will also give you a smooth transition into university study. If you're a year 13 student, you can extend your learning through one of the University’s first-year Maths or Writing courses.

The 2021 Leadership Camp will present workshops from a range of academics and industry professionals as well as fun, supervised activities that allow students to explore the Wellington region.
