Victoria University (VU) is the New Way To Do Uni.
VU is the first Australian university to use Block Model learning. This multi award-winning model allows students to complete one subject at a time over four weeks in small classes, meaning they can focus better on each subject and have more one-on-one time with their educators.
Since its launch in 2018, students have become more engaged, get higher pass rates and achieve better grades. VU’s TAFE division, Victoria University Polytechnic offers an award-winning blended learning model that replaces paper-based theory with a combination of face-to-face teaching, flexible eLearning and hands-on experience.
As one of only six Australian universities to offer both TAFE and higher education studies, students can use pathways to move between VU Polytechnic and VU courses.
Impactful courses and research
VU’s colleges and schools include business, arts and education, engineering and science, health and biomedicine, law and justice, sport and exercise science, the visitor economy, and transport systems and civic infrastructure.
VU research offers outstanding cross-disciplinary research opportunities in sport, health and active living, and sustainable industries and liveable cities. Planetary health, the centre of VU’s research activity and moral purpose is reflected in VU’s membership in the Harvard University-based Planetary Health Alliance.
Partnerships with more than 4000 organisations inform VU’s curriculum and provide students with work-integrated learning opportunities to ensure they’re work ready.
More than 40,000 students from over 90 countries study onshore, and 5400 more are at VU’s partner institutions in Asia.
For more than a century, VU has proudly offered its students an accessible, internationally-engaged and industry-focused education that produces career-ready graduates.
