Victoria University (VU)

This program produces career-ready graduates by providing students with both technical and professional competencies, and highly valued generic skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork/collaboration and effective communication. Students have the flexibility to build on the core commercial skills developed in first year, by choosing a major in second year that will prepare for a career in either Applied Finance or International Business. In the final year, students will complete two business capstone units which give the opportunity to take part in a multidisciplinary group project or a research challenge competition. Students are also encouraged to complete a minor to expand knowledge and enhance employability. In this course students may select an overseas study tour, industry placement, and take part in a mentoring program. There are extensive opportunities to engage in workplace-based projects and authentic case-based scenarios.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
