The VU Block Model

Narrator

We've been teaching the same way for hundreds of years now, but the world around us has changed and along with it, employer and industry needs.

So, at VU, we changed the way you learn with our Australian First VU Block Model.

Traditionally, you'd juggle the demands and deadlines of four units at once.

Instead, the VU Block Model has you focus on one unit at a time.

Each semester will be broken into four blocks, which run for four weeks. You focus on one unit in each block, completing all your assessments before moving on to the next.

So, instead of this, the VU Block Model looks like this.

Students have greater focus, learning one thing at a time.

Studying in smaller, more collaborative classes, students only attend class three days per week.

So, you can still focus on other activities in your life.

With the introduction of the Block Model, student success is soaring, with a pass rate of over 90% for undergraduate students and more than 60% receiving grades at distinction level or above.
