Discipline guides

Our Discipline Guides for 2018 will be available in June 2017. They 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.

Below are the Discipline Guides for study in 2017:

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.
