Victoria University’s history dates to 1916, when it first opened as the Footscray Technical School. Over subsequent decades, the school expanded to include degree courses across several academic disciplines, becoming the university it is today.
Victoria University (VU) still offers both vocational and academic courses, and ranks within the top 2% of universities worldwide*. It is one of Australia’s largest and most culturally diverse education institutions, with an award-winning ‘VU Block’ learning model and strong ties to industry. As one of the few dual-sector universities in Australia, VU offers unique opportunities for students to move between its TAFE and university divisions. And, with work experience embedded into the curriculum, the university prides itself on producing successful, job-ready graduates. Victoria University continues to innovate, offering small, supportive classes in sequence – rather than large lectures concurrently – in what it aptly calls “The New Way To Do Uni”.
