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 allows for hands on experience whether it be through classes like advocacy where you’re taught how to approach court matters, or also through programs with the magistrates court there is the option to learn about the career on the job. There is a lot of social aspects as well such as yearly balls, bbqs and much more

Negatives: The university can be quiet slow at responding to issues, responding with results and now bring in the block placement learning

My advice to future students is: I would say it’s a very hard course however if you keep up to date with assignment and reading you’ll be able to do well. And also to put yourself up for these situations

Positives: Bachelor of Laws; covered every area of law, was able to find where my strengths and weaknesses lied and what area I was really interested in learning more about. classes were of small numbers which was fantastic as it enabled me to create a group of friends and not be lost in the crowd, smaller numbers meant we produced a closer relationship with lecturers/tutors which allowed me to receive more help and advice throughout the course. the same lecturers also took more than one class so it was lovely to have a lecturer to remembered faces and names.

Negatives: only negative was that subjects were only available once a year either semester 1 or 2, so if you missed completing a subject in a certain semester, you would have to wait the following year to complete it, this happened to me which had me a bit annoyed but there was nothing I could do. summer and winter semesters didn't have much of a variety of subject, and core usually weren't offered during these semesters, so its not ideal if you need to complete over the summer/winter periods

My advice to future students is: law at VU is fantastic I highly recommend it, they offer lots of support to students and so many ways to connect with VU, they also help students with career advice and send through emails on the regular with work experience programs and graduate programs up for offer so students can apply. they regualary have speakers come down to talk and hold many events for students in terms of their career. Lecturers come from well known institutions and corporations and are highly educated in the field.
