The Victoria University of Wellington (Victoria, Maori: Te Whare Wānanga o te Ūpoko o te Ika a Māui) supports numerous distance and online education efforts. There are central distance options for professional development and continuing education seekers; as well as degree programs run on a faculty-by-faculty basis. Level on online participation varies extensively depending on each department.

The university was established in 1897 by Act of Parliament, and was a former constituent college of the University of New Zealand. It is known for its programmes in law, the humanities, and some scientific disciplines. For New Zealand residents entry to most courses is open.
