Course guides

The best way to find up-to-date information about courses and units that you can apply for is through our course finder search.

This page, and the links on it, identify print publications (in PDF format) that you can use to look up current and past course details.

Our Victoria University (VU) Course Guides offer a quick overview of courses offered by the University to domestic and international students.

These include further and vocational education (TAFE) courses, and higher education undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Download the web accessible guides.

The Guides also include details on:

  • how to apply for courses
  • student services and assistance
  • facilities and campuses.

These course guides were published in April 2018 for people selecting courses to study in 2019.

Please note that the course information printed in the course guide may not remain up-to-date throughout the year as new courses get added and others removed. Please check our course finder for the most recent information.

International course guides

Create a course e-brochure

Our international course guides provide an overview of the programs, facilities, services and support available to international students at VU.

In addition to downloading the guides listed below, you can also create a personalised PDF brochure based on your study interests and personal information.

Discipline guides

Our Discipline Guides for 2018 offer a broad overview of the course areas in each of VU’s Colleges, so you can make an informed decision when choosing your studies.

Student handbooks

Student handbooks are another type of print publication, in this case one is produced for each college. The Student Handbooks are produced for Government compliance purposes in the year preceding print: some of the information may have changed slightly since printing.

On the handbooks page you can also find an archive of previous years student handbooks to lookup a course you may have studied that we no longer offer.

Course delivery plans

Some colleges have also produced detailed course delivery plans in PDF versions which you may need at your enrolment session. The course delivery plans outline the course structure and show the correct number and type of units for course completion, especially important for courses with electives and specialisations.
