Message from the Vice-Chancellor

Welcome to Victoria University.

We are a world-class university in one of the world’s most liveable cities, ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide and 56th in the world’s top universities under 50 years.

We are proud to be a student-centred, innovative and supportive university. We are delivering The New Way To Do Uni through our revolutionary VU Block Model – a first in Australia.

You can immerse yourself in one subject at a time, without the conflicting demands of multiple subjects, but also manage your work and life commitments.

This smarter way to take on tertiary study has resulted in soaring pass rates, an increase in grade averages, and recognition from the International Education Association of Australia Excellence Awards for innovation and excellence in education.

You get meaningful real-world experience while you study, developing the skills and capabilities that employers value to position you strongly for the jobs of the future. We are now rated the best Australian higher-education institution in the nation for employability skills.

VU Polytechnic is a leader in digital innovation, with an award-winning blended-learning model, expertly designed to equip learners with the technical skills and the thinking abilities needed to adapt and thrive in a modern work setting.

Join us for the career journey that is Victoria University.
