Broaden your education by studying overseas for one or more semesters at VU!
Victoria University (VU) is an internationally renowned university, ranking within the top 4% of universities worldwide (QS World University Rankings 2015/16).
As one of 39 public universities in Australia, students can be assured that their qualification from VU is being awarded from a university operating in a world-class education system.
VU now has more than 51,000 enrolled students, which includes more than 13,800 international students studying our courses onshore or with our partner institutions offshore. More than 5400 research, teaching and general staff join with the University’s students to make VU a university that is excellent, engaged and accessible.
Two exchange places are available at Victoria University for Spring 2018. The two completed applications will be nominated for the exchange. Applications received after places are filled will be put on a waiting list or may change their application to another semester or another exchange partner.

Back to top
Study Abroad and exchange students are required to take a full-time load of 3 or 4 VU units per semester. Most units have a weighting of 12 credit points.
When studying a full-time load, you should expect to have around 15-20 contact hours (times when you must attend the University) per week plus study time.
From 2018, our new First Year Model will deliver first-year units in sequence over a four-week block period. Study abroad and exchange students cannot enroll in first-year units (subjects) during their semester/s at VU.
Under the new timetabling arrangement, study abroad and exchange students can enroll only in second and third-year units (or fourth-year if applicable), as opposed to the current process where units can be selected from a mix of course levels (i.e. first and second-year subjects).
Students studying at VU usually have a mix of lectures and tutorials. In addition, you might have practical classes or fieldwork.
Lectures are held in modern lecture theatres with large groups of students. Lectures generally go for 1-3 hours and may involve note-taking, demonstrations, AV presentations, etc.
Tutorials supplement lectures and give you a chance to discuss topics in detail in a smaller group environment.
Assessment quite often differs from one unit to another and can take a variety of forms, including written work and tests undertaken in class, participation in class or laboratory sessions, as well as final examinations at the end of each semester.
Fieldwork or practical experience can also form part of the content and assessment of some units.
