Note:

Did you ever wonder which one is correct: there is a variety of and there are a variety of?

 

Answer:
In general, the phrase A Variety Of is used the same as a number of is used.
For example:
There are a number of reasons to globalisation.
There are a wide variety of vegetables available in this supermarket.
There are a variety of IELTS books for you to choose.

However, when you use certain modifiers along with A Variety Of, you will have to use singular verbs. For example:
Such a wide variety of IELTS books is making confusions to many students.
The same thing is applied for a number of: There is such a large number of candidates because of the advertised salary for the job.
