About VU

College handbooks

Each College at VU has a Course Handbook. These are print publications, produced for government compliance purposes in the year preceding print.

Some of the information may have changed slightly since printing, so if you're thinking of studying, we recommend you use our course finder for the most up-to-date course information.

Our new Colleges are:

  • Arts
  • Business
  • Education
  • Engineering and Science
  • Health and Biomedicine
  • Law and Justice
  • Sport and Exercise Science
  • Trades College
  • VU College.

These are the latest handbooks for the 2013 teaching year, created prior to the implementation of the new colleges:
