About Victoria University

Victoria University (VU) is a world-class university located in Melbourne, one of the world’s most liveable cities. We are in the top 2% of universities worldwide, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. In 2018 a key initiative was the introduction of the Block model, a transformative way of delivering education, through sequential learning (one unit each 4 weeks), delivered in a focussed learner-centred environment using real-world problem based learning and a small group interactive approach. This is the biggest endeavour in the world to date to implement university block teaching across all educational fields, and will be extended into postgraduate education in 2021.

Validating the success of our Block Model, in 2018 we won the Victorian International Education Awards (university category) and the International Education of Australia Excellence Awards (innovation category).
VU's unique commitment to education for all is reflected in its dual sector status, as a provider of Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training. This enables a seamless learning experience, placing student need at the centre, from certificate level through to Ph.D.
Our diverse pathway options also include foundation studies, higher education diplomas and English language courses delivered through our world-class English language centre, VU English. More than 40,000 students are enrolled in our courses, delivered across nine Melbourne campuses – including three in the city centre – and a tenth campus in central Sydney. Our alumni network includes 240,000 graduates, including 30,000 professionals living and working overseas.

Our strong international outlook, growing research profile, high industry income and excellent teaching quality are reflected in our world rankings - especially in our core disciplines of sport and exercise science, engineering and technology, computer science and education. In addition to our highly-ranked subject areas, we provide world-class research opportunities for our staff and students, particularly in our flagship areas of Health and Sport, and Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities.

Industry engagement is the hallmark of a VU qualification. Our 4,000-plus industry partnerships encompass many forms – from work-integrated learning and research collaborations to sponsorship and international course delivery. Many of our courses are developed with, and accredited by, globally-recognised industry bodies.
