Study with the VU Block Model

We are the first Australian university to use a 'block' model of learning, where you study one unit at a time rather than juggling several at once.

You'll study in short bursts, called blocks, each focused on one unit (subject) over four weeks.

Our 100% online Bachelor of Business program allows you to study when it suits you and you are not required to be online at specific times. It is recommended that you spend at least 20 hours per week on your studies.


There are 24 units in the course. If you have a CSP-funded place, each unit is charged at $2040.

What is a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP)?
A Commonwealth Supported Place is subsidised by the government, reducing it to the amount listed here. Most Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens will qualify for a CSP. If you don’t qualify, you’ll pay full fees.

What is HECS-HELP?
HECS-HELP is a Commonwealth Government loan scheme that helps eligible students pay all or part of their tuition fees, to be repaid once the student is working.
