V-ISA

A warm welcome to Victoria University of Wellington!

VUWSA-International Students’ Association (V-ISA for short, and no we do not issue visas) is the representative group of all international students at Victoria.

V-ISA has two main areas of focus:

The first is to speak on issues affecting international students at Victoria University. In 2016, V-ISA actively advocated against the international student fees hike as well as on the inaccessibility and unavailability of scholarships for international students at VUW. After months of conducting research and campaigns, last September V-ISA presented an oral submission on these issues to the University Council. As a result, the university has recognised V-ISA as the representative of all international students and will work with V-ISA in regards to international student issues.

Secondly, V-ISA provides various social events to foster a community spirit amongst international students and to better integrate them into the Wellington community. Through events such as the Amazing Race, international students are provided with unique opportunities for exploring Wellington by having to interact with locals to familiarise themselves with the city and have fun while doing so. In September, we have International Week to celebrate the diverse cultures of international students studying at Victoria.

While V-ISA is targeted at international students, we welcome all students who have an interest in international student issues or who would simply like to make friends with students from various parts of the world.

If you have any questions, problems, ideas, or concerns, don’t hesitate to send an email to vuwvisa@gmail.com. Also like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram, @vuwvisa, for regular updates. Have a great O-Week everyone!

: First tutorial of the year. When I open the door, I underestimate my strength, thinking it to be all used up in my journey here. It swings open violently and I trip into the room where awkward gazes greet me. Frozen, my legs are lead and I’m stuck on display for too long. My ov
