University changes UE rules for COVID disruption
Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington has created a new admission category for school leavers who may have missed out getting University Entrance because of the disruptions caused by COVID-19.
Provost Wendy Larner says Provisional Admission recognises the university’s core ethical values such as fairness and empathy.
She says there will be additional academic and pastoral support including dedicated advisors for students in that category.
When exam results are available at the end of January, the university will email admission offers to students who have not achieved UE but meet the criteria for provisional admission.
Professor Larmer says the new category complements other options for school leavers who do not achieve UE, including Discretionary Entrance and the Tohu Māoritanga (Diploma in Māoritanga) and Diploma in University Studies (Pasifika Pathways) programmes.
