Victoria University is pleased to welcome secondary school graduates through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) January round offer.

First preferences applications for VU’s Higher Education courses increased by approximately 4% compared to 2020, in another show of support for VU’s Block Model.

New VU Vice-Chancellor Professor Adam Shoemaker said the University was delighted to welcome about 2000 first-year students who applied for their course through VTAC.

Students showed especially strong interest for courses in VU’s College of Heath & BiomedicineEngineering & Science, Sport & Exercise Science, and VU College.

“We congratulate all our new students and are pleased they chose VU for their studies,” he said.

“Despite the extra challenges this new group of students has faced during the final year of their secondary school studies due to the pandemic, they have proven themselves to be resilient and determined.”

Summer Block proves popular

With the introduction of VU’s Block Model in 2017, and the extra flexibility it provides, VU has this year welcomed over 360 undergraduate students into the January Summer Block.

These new students will be introduced to VU’s First Year College, established to provide first year students with an engaging learning experience while adjusting to university life and study.

For the first time, an additional 130 postgraduate students also begin their studies in the Summer Block, with many other students enrolling in newly designed short course programs.

Direct entry applications for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Semester 1 are currently open, closing on Sunday 14 February.

Applications for TAFE courses at Victoria University Polytechnic are also now open.
