Victoria University (VU) is well known for preparing our students not just for a career, but for life. Through our strong industry connections and leadership in sport education, we provide opportunities for every individual to achieve success on their own terms. As one of only a few Australian universities to offer both vocational training (TAFE) and higher education with direct pathways between the two, our range of courses includes apprenticeships, certificates, diplomas, degrees and postgraduate programs.
1. Victoria University is an open and excellent university that prides itself on being inclusive. We are delivering a next generation education for the twenty first century through our revolutionary Victoria University Block Model – a first in Australia. Students completely immerse themselves in one subject at a time, without the pressure of conflicting demands and deadlines of multiple subjects.
2. INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS - VU pursue industry partnerships for our students that result in internships and work placements that are meaningful, engaging and impactful.
3. In the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020 (and previously in 2017–19), VU was ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide.
4. At Victoria University (VU), you can undertake collaborative research for and with industry, government and community. Our graduate researchers are based within our colleges and specialised research centres and institutes, working with renowned research staff and contributing to the 600 papers published annually – more than half of which appear in the world’s best journals. A recent survey of our graduate researchers found a 93% satisfaction rate with our support and skills development programs. We are also one of just seven Australian universities to receive a five-star rating from the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations for our facilities.
5. Leaders in sport - Victoria University (VU) is ranked number 12 globally for sport science education. (ShanghaiRanking: Academic Rankings of World Universities)
Good: Library, facilities, learning environment and learning space, enough materials. Best thing: Career oriented counseling, mentoring and workshops from VU Learning hub. Some employment opportunities for deserving students. Block system (very effective for reducing study pressure.). Sessions for personal development and communications. Bad: Old course structure that gives little to no technical knowledge for IT. Moreover some of the staff are like dummies so whatever you learn is on your own effort and research. Very expensive for international students. If someone is looking for a good degree then this is the place but if they are after good technical and practical skills this may not be a best choice.
Studying at Victoria University is the best I can say. I had great experience with them. Faculty is very nice they have different way of teaching whatever doubts you have they will clear it you 10 times unless it's clear to you. I am very happy that I studied here. Thanks to my sister she recommended me this university.
Whatever you do, you must do it with full zeal. This is exactly what my professor used to tell us. I think its in my skin now. I aced my class. 2 more years to go. I will know I will win the race again.
