Competition between the plethora of tertiary institutions in Zild has led to the weird situation where in Wellington there are two universities operating full-time - Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University - and an Auckland polytechnic is offering Masters courses in Wellington through a mixture of on-line and weekend study groups, mostly with help from noddies like me.

Counting the polytechnics, there are seven degree-granting schools in the town. All for a population of about 400,000.

Funnily enough, Wellington is the most tertiary-qualified city in New Zealand. I forget the percentage, but it's quite significant, for some strange reason.
