JOIN OUR REVOLUTIONARY FIRST YEAR MODEL
First-year student, Bachelor of Information Technology
"I feel like I’m settling in well – I like how under the First Year Model we do one unit at a time instead of juggling other subjects. It reduces my stress so I can enjoy my studies more and I feel more confident."
First-year student, Bachelor
MARIE STELLA DE LEON
First-year student, Bachelor
"I like that in the First Year Model, we get a taste of the different majors in our Business degree. The teacher is making sure we’re engaged and ready to move into the next unit."
"The course work is evenly spread in the First Year Model – and you’re getting your teeth into it straight away – by the second week you’re 50% through! A few years ago, I started a degree at another uni, and doing all the units at once become overwhelming."
WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE FIRST YEAR MODEL
VU's new First Year Model is designed to ease your transition into uni life, build your confidence and set you up for success in your degree and beyond.
FIRST YEAR MODEL - WHY IS IT BETTER FOR ME?
Enjoy uni life
At VU, you'll learn in smaller classes of no more than 40 students, allowing you more one-on-one time with lecturers who can invest more in your progress.
You’ll benefit from a more relaxed learning environment where you can make new friends and find your feet at uni from day one.
Teaching sessions are available in multiple combinations of days and times (morning, afternoon and evening). This allows you to choose a timetable that best suits you and also offers two full days off-campus per week.
Our First Year Model is a revolutionary way to learn, proven to be more effective in universities in Sweden, Canada and the US.
Focus on studying one subject at a time
More one-on-one time with your lecturers
In your first year at VU, you'll study your course units one at a time, completing one unit before moving to the next.
Maximum 3 days on campus

Internationally proven as a better way to learn
