Find out more about Victoria University

Victoria University (Vic Uni or VU) has several campuses in Melbourne, including Footscray (Footscray Park & Footscray Nicholson), St Albans, several City campuses, Sunshine and in Sydney.

We have a range of Victoria University reviews from both Bachelor and Masters students across a range of topics.

Based on the VU students reviews, some of the advice they recommend includes:
Some faculties offer career advice, send through work experience and graduate opportunities;
Take on as many opportunities/experiences as the university provides;
Go out of your way to socialise with Lecturers, Tutors and classmates at Uni;
Be organised and focussed while studying so that it doesn't get away from you;
Placements can be amazing opportunities, but can be difficult to organise.

I really like the course structure, the university itself and all the teachers. But the area where the main campus is located is quite far from the city.

Its not a good uni therefore i wouldn't recommend anyone go there as there is no campus culture or atmosphere.

I'd recommend others to look at different courses/institutions

Some of the teachers are good and try to help

I studied with a Management major.

I'd totally avoid this course.

Don't go to VU. The only "good" thing there is the teachers and the friends you make. Else, everything is bad.

I'm doing the Management and Innovation major.

The course content and teachers are extremely helpful and relevant to working in a business environment, as I work at pitcher partners the accounting firm, I find all the content can be applied to my daily work life.

However as time goes on and I am more involved in my work life, Im finding working in this environment is proving more valuable to me than the course.

I do believe though that the course has he potential to hold you in good stead and provide you with the knowledge needed when going down the business path.

I'm doing an accounting major

It's a cheap course, the uni resources are fine, but the uni is located in a remote area.

It's good to do a course like this to get into accounting although more study is often required (depending on your role).

I'm doing Information Systems Management major.

The course is informative - although perhaps it'd be better doing a more 'technical' focussed course (eg CS) with some business elements might be more beneficial for trying to find a job.

It's also relatively cheap for international students.

My advice to future students is: Choose your subjects wisely

I did a major in Supply Chain and Logistics Management.

The positives was the whole experience. I was a mature age student, so being able to go back to Uni and achieve the level of grades I received was amazing...

I did enjoy the PD units that were unique to VU.

The negative is that the theory taught is really not current with today's SCM/L theory and practices

My advice to future students is: Embrace the moment but be aware that just because you have a degree / Masters does not necessarily mean you have knowledge in your field.

Positive: Learnt how to work with others in groups.

Negative: Didn't really prepare me for the workforce and for the range of jobs available in the industry.

My advice to future students is: Get a job working parttime in the industry you're interested in as soon as you possibly can.

The exams were not very hard, because the lecturer would normally test what they have covered, and normally they give you sample test, which is similar to final exam.

I was international student, in my first year, I found I could hardly understand what the lecturers were saying, but managed to get 80% marks, since I just practiced the sample tests. However, I did not even understand the logic behind the test. It was after 2 years when I studied in my master degree that I got to understand my Bachelor course­čśŤ. So an easy exam could be positive in the short term, but negative in the long term.

In Victoria Uni, most of the time I studied by myself because of language barriers as an international student, but after first semester I tried to learn more from lectures, and I guess it did improve my result and make my study much easier compared to studying by myself, so listening to lectures actively definitely saves your time in study.

My advice to future students is: Do the sample test carefully, and think about what are the variations of sample test. Think about what questions would you put into the exam if you were the examiner. After this, be confident and careful with your numbers in exam.

The level and type of lecturers vary a lot, from highly responsible (mostly female lexturers) to less responsible mostly male lecturers. But it is up to you which lecturers you enroll and how you study.
