Victoria University of Wellington was established in 1897 as Victoria College. In 1961, the University of New Zealand system (degree candidates were presented to an independent body that assessed all candidates throughout the country) was dissolved and from 1962 Victoria College became an independent university, Victoria University of Wellington.

Wellington College of Education (WCE) and Victoria University of Wellington (VUW) have had a long history of working together to advance teacher education. In 2001 the Councils of WCE and VUW agreed for the establishment of a formal partnership between the two institutions. As a result, Wellington College of Education was de-established in December 2004 and the Victoria University Faculty of Education came into being in January 2005.

Victoria is a thriving community of almost 25,000 people.  In 2011, Victoria University employed 1,974 full-time equivalent staff. A total of 22,234 students were enrolled.
