Throughout 2021, Victoria University will be hosting 'VU in Focus' – a series of interactive professional-development experiences for career practitioners and teachers.

The series includes online and on-campus opportunities to gain exclusive insights into our transformational agenda, and immerse yourself in the student experience. We’ll explore how VU prepares your students for work and life, and teaches them how to embrace technological advancements in their studies and careers.


Registrations are essential for each event as numbers are capped. They will open approximately six weeks prior to each event and you can register for as many events as you like.
