REVOLUTIONISED
EDUCATION
PROVEN SUCCESS

VU BLOCK MODEL

The VU Block Model is an Australian first. It’s transformed the way you learn to make your transition into university smoother, and ensure you succeed – both while you’re studying and when you enter the workforce.

By studying one unit every four weeks, in small groups, and with classes just three times a week, you’ll have better focus, more support from lecturers and a greater chance of success.

VU POLYTECHNIC’S
BLENDED LEARNING MODEL

At our TAFE division, Victoria University Polytechnic, we take a contemporary approach. Our multi-award-winning Blended Learning model replaces paper-based learning with flexible and user-friendly eLearning, face-to-face training and support, and practical experience in workplace or simulated settings.

Smaller classes provide a supportive and engaging environment where you’ll be able to build a strong relationship with your teachers.

DIGITAL & REMOTE LEARNING SUCCESS

In 2020, successfully adapting to digital and remote learning has been our number-one goal. And we’ve achieved it – through the commitment of our staff and students, and with the benefits of our unique learning model and robust digital-learning platform.

Thanks to the Block Model’s single unit focus and a timetable that facilitates study-life balance, students have continued to flourish in the remote learning environment, achieving similar academic results to 2019 – despite the disruption.

CONNECTED TO
INDUSTRY

With more than 4000 links with industry across teaching and research, we are one of the most industry-connected universities in Australia. Through close industry consultation, your course has been designed with the latest expertise and technology, and is delivered in our state-of-the-art, industry-standard facilities.

We facilitate and encourage meaningful, engaging and impactful internships and work placements in all of our courses. Combined with our hands-on approach to learning in the classroom, this adds up to you gaining the confidence and skills needed to get a head start in the workforce.

COMMITMENT TO
A BETTER FUTURE

We are a university with a heart and soul. We’re immensely proud of our people and our vibrant community, and we make sure our students feel that pride too. We have initiatives in local communities that you can get immersed in for social, personal and professional development.

At VU, we are committed to planetary health – a global movement addressing our impact on the environment and our communities. In our research, teaching, and actions on and around our campuses, we work to improve the health and wellbeing of our local and global communities, and the planet that we share.
