Our courses are offered in two structures:

  • Postgraduate courses are delivered via the 8-Week Block model.
  • Diploma and undergraduate programs are delivered via the Block Model.

All programs at VU Sydney run in semester-based delivery.

Semester 1, 2022 commences Monday 21 February.

Important terminology

When checking your course dates, please note that the administrative census date or last day to add units is the deadline for adding units each study period.

The census date is your last day to withdraw from your course or unit(s) without financial penalties.

If you miss census date but withdraw before the deadline for withdrawing without academic penalty (listed as WD deadline on this page) you will avoid the academic penalty (fail), but you will remain liable for the fees.

If you withdraw after the WD deadline you will fail the unit and also be liable for the fees. This is called withdraw with academic penalty (listed as WN fail on this page).

Undergraduate & Higher Education diploma programs

Please check your course dates here. Undergraduate and Higher Education diploma programs follow four-week block dates.

Results will be displayed in MyVU at 12pm AEST (noon) on the dates listed here.
