Victoria University is recognised as one of Australia's most innovative universities, offering a unique combination of academic and practical skills to give you the technological and communications expertise to jump start your working life.
The fastest growing university in Australia since its creation in 1990, Victoria University is committed to opening up opportunities to quality education for students from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.
Today more than 50 000 students and staff of more than 90 nationalities make up the greatest international mix at any Australian university, and research surveys have identified the University's teaching staff as the most friendly and caring in the state.
The University is one of only four dual-sector universities in Australia with the choice of both Higher Education and TAFE courses. This means that you can graduate from a course in TAFE and move into degree course through the pathways program.
The University is a leader in creating the pathways between Higher Education and TAFE, providing students with flexibility to transfer between courses, and in linking its courses to the real world of work through programs such as the Co operative Education program, which consists of 'hands on' paid work experience during courses.
The University's four Higher Education faculties and seven Technical and Further Education schools have developed strong links with industry, business and the local community. A number of alliances have been forged with key industry players to give students direct access to cutting-edge research, as well as work experience to broaden their employment options.
bringing tertiary education to all members of the community is a priority for Victoria University. Its Portfolio Partnership Program tailors courses and course pathways to meet individual student needs, including easy pathways between Technical and Further Education and higher education.
Victoria University is also part of an international network of universities and has formal exchange agreements with institutions throughout Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. The University runs offshore courses in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the People's Republic of China.
