Academic structure

Study load

 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.

Class structure


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

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.

Grading & results

Please note that VU's grading system may vary from the system your home institution uses.
