In 2016, Victoria University (VU) celebrates a Centenary of opportunity marking 100 years of delivering high quality, accessible education in the west of Melbourne.
Through our strong industry connections and leadership in sport education, we provide opportunities for every individual to achieve success on their own terms, and prepare them not just for a career, but for life.
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.
We have over 45,000 students from around the world studying at one of our many campuses in Melbourne’s west and the CBD – as well as an international campus in Sydney.
No matter where you are in life, we believe that victory is yours for the making.
