EXPERIENCE UNI LIKE NEVER BEFORE
Our students are loving the VU Block Model and it's also helping them become more successful. In 2018, more students performed well in first year than ever before. First-year pass rates increased to over 80% and the amount of students receiving distinctions and high distinctions jumped to 40%.
What is the VU Block Model?
What our students say about the VU Block Model
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.
VU BLOCK MODEL - A REVOLUTION IN LEARNING
Why is VU’s Block Model better for me?
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 1 subject every 4 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.
Check out this video to hear from our students about how the VU Block Model is working for them.
"The most hands-on experience", "work placements from the start" and "passionate teachers" are just some of the reasons students love studying with us.
