VU BLOCK MODEL - A REVOLUTION IN LEARNING

You'll have a greater chance of success

In the first year of the VU Block Model, more of our students performed well than ever before.

You'll feel less stressed

You only have to focus on one subject at a time. At other universities, you will have to complete multiple subjects at once.

Your transition to uni will be easier

You'll complete one subject every four weeks (including assessments) so you can build confidence in your course from day one.

You'll feel supported

Learn in smaller classes and have more one-on-one time with your teachers.

In 2018, we introduced a new way of learning to make your transition to university easier and give you the skills to succeed when you enter the workforce.


Rather than dealing with the stress of studying four units at once as you would at any other university, the VU Block Model lets you focus on studying one subject at a time every four weeks.


We call these four-week study periods ‘blocks’. Each block focuses on one unit (subject) and includes all assessments. You then get up to four days between blocks to relax and prepare for the next unit.

WHAT IS THE VU BLOCK MODEL?

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE VU BLOCK MODEL

WHY IS VU'S BLOCK MODEL BETTER FOR ME?

VU Block Model isn’t just about succeeding in first year. We offer practical, skill-building activities to make sure you achieve your best across your whole degree and are set up for a great future career.


From industry-based work placements, to mentorship opportunities and employability assistance, we can link you to a network of over 4000 industry connections. That’s why businesses across the country rate VU graduates in the top 10 of more than 40 universities in Australia for work-readiness.*

SUCCESS BEYOND GRADUATION

* Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching’s 2018 Employer Satisfaction Survey

“Through practical industry subjects, VU gave me the confidence to work as part of a team to support the delivery of large-scale projects. I’ve gained invaluable knowledge from my course which has allowed me to stand out to employers, even as an undergrad.”

FAST-TRACK YOUR STUDIES WITH AN EARLY START

Under the VU Block Model, your year is separated into two semesters, with four blocks per semester, an optional Winter Block after semester one, and an optional Summer Block 2 after semester two.


From 2020 our new Summer Block 1 will offer another optional four-week study block starting on 13 January. 

Summer Block 1 means you have the opportunity to start – and finish – your course earlier. Or you can enjoy maximum flexibility by taking Summer Block 1 in January instead of one of the other four-week blocks during the year. Free up time for travel, work, sporting commitments and more.

Note: Summer Block 1 is only available to commencing first year students from 2020 studying select courses. Students wishing to apply for advanced standing may not be able to commence Summer Block 1.
