VU'S BLOCK MODEL – A REVOLUTION IN LEARNING
WHAT IS THE VU BLOCK MODEL?
VU’s award-winning Block Model offers you a New Way To Do Uni. With the Block Model, you complete one unit at a time over four weeks, before moving to the next. It’s a more supportive and engaging way to study than the traditional model of uni, where you juggle four units at once over a 12 week semester.
We’re the first and only Australian uni to introduce the Block Model and it’s driving student success. First year pass rates have increased to 87% (13% up on the traditional model) and distinction rates are higher, too.
WHY IS VU'S BLOCK MODEL BETTER FOR ME?
You'll stay focused
You'll have a better chance of achieving academic success
At VU, you’ll be fully focused on each subject, so you can focus, reinforce concepts through practical learning, and quickly implement feedback.
In 2019, first year pass rates were at 87% (up 13% on traditional model), and second year pass rates were at 90%.
You'll feel supported
Fast-track your studies
Learn in smaller classes and have more one-on-one time with your teachers.
You can choose to finish your studies faster with optional winter and summer blocks of study, or take time off for work or travel and still finish your year on schedule.
