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.

Positives: The course allowed and promoted flexibility in the duration and location of study. The university offered several locations with units offered across each campus on offer. The course sourced placements and provided longer placement durations than other universities to increase skills and experience.

The course offered the opportunity to travel overseas to complete units and placements which were easily recognised towards course completion - these included USA, Timor-Leste and a remote school in the Northern Territory. Much of these international placement experiences were funded by the university.

Negatives: The course administration at the university were not organised, nor had a sense of urgency when dealing with students. Often lectures and tutorials would be overbooked and students would be told the day before that they had been moved to different tutorials at different times. This made it particularly difficult when managing outside commitments.

The course is very much tailored to self-motivated learners as there is no accountability for not attending tutorials and lectures.

My advice to future students is: Take on as many experiences as the university provides. The course was able to provide me with many opportunities related to placement opportunities that I could only dream of and that were mostly funded by the university. The course is suited towards self-motivated individuals. Best of luck in your endeavours!
