Victoria University (VU) is open to all students, with a flexible approach to learning that lets us navigate changing circumstances – so you can study uninterrupted.

Our course delivery includes online real-time and self-paced classes, as well as safe in-person learning.

 

New delivery modes

The achievements and adaptability of students and staff are reflected in our ongoing delivery modes for the future. 

Victoria University delivery

  • In person: Your unit or classes will be delivered on the campus you have enrolled in. The timetable will display “On Campus” and provide the room where the classes will be held and you will physically attend those classes. All learning activity delivered on campus will continue to be run under strict COVID-19 safe practices.*
  • Online real-time: Your unit or classes will be delivered online using Zoom. The timetable will display “Online Real Time (ZOOM)” and you will attend scheduled classes remotely through Zoom classrooms. 
  • Online self-paced: You will participate in learning activities online over that period but not at a set time. You will be able to conduct these activities at a time that suits you, providing those activities are completed by the required time. Your timetable will display “Online Self-Paced”.
  • Hybrid: Part of your unit will be delivered in person on the campus you have enrolled in, with the remainder delivered in an online mode. The timetable will state which classes or activities in the unit will be delivered on campus and which classes or activities will be online, in either real-time or self-paced mode.

Your unit will show whether it is delivered wholly online real-time, online self-paced or in person. If your unit is delivered in hybrid mode, each class within the unit will show whether it is delivered in person or online. Please be sure to check all the individual classes in your unit.

Please check your VU student email for any changes to delivery.
