Dear Student,

I warmly welcome you to Victoria University in 2018.

Victoria University is the University of Opportunity and Success, committed to supporting any student from any background to be successful, and we are committed to both access and excellence. You have made the right choice to study at our world-class institution.

It is an exciting time as we begin the 2018 academic year. This year is particularly special for the university as we welcome our first intake of students into the First Year Model – our new revolutionary Australian-first teaching method that will allow you to focus on your studies one class at a time.

If you are a new student, please embrace all the opportunities offered to you that will build your connections with the VU community and all that university life has to offer. Victoria University is an inclusive and friendly university, and offering you the best student experience possible is at the forefront of all that we do.

I encourage you to pursue your dreams with courage, boldness, innovation and agility. I hope that you enjoy your time at VU, and I look forward to meeting you on campus.

I wish you all the best with your studies in 2018.



Professor Peter Dawkins
Vice-Chancellor and President
