Victoria University


Recommended Posts

Victoria University achieved university status in 1991, but our preceding institutions date back to 1916. We are one of Australia's few dual-sector universities. Today, we have over 40,000 enrolled higher education and vocational education and training students studying on our campuses.

The Victoria Graduate School of Business (VGSB) is dedicated to encouraging your educational and career aspirations. We offer the flexibility and convenience you need to make postgraduate study work for you. We combine academic excellence and practical learning through our close ties with the industry. Specializing in business education, research, and consultancy, we focus on getting you to your career goals.

We also have an extensive international network with partners in China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Germany, India, and the USA. CEO Magazine's 2017 Global Rankings awarded our MBA a Tier One rating for its excellent lecturers, small class sizes, student diversity, value-for-money, and international study options. As one of 39 public universities in Australia, graduates can be assured their VU qualification is being awarded from a university operating in a world-class education system.

Being a dual-sector university means that our students can complete pathway vocational education quickly to higher education - from a certificate or diploma course to an undergraduate degree or even a postgraduate qualification by coursework or research. As the University of Opportunity and Success, we will be open and excellent, creating exceptional value for any student from any background and uplifting the communities we operate. We will achieve this vision by:

  • Providing high quality, engaging career-based tertiary education at all vocational and higher education levels with flexible entry and exit points, appropriate pathways, engaging and rigorous curriculum, and contemporary delivery while maintaining rigorous standards and ensuring that all students are supported to meet those standards.
  • Undertaking high quality and innovative applied and translational research results in healthier, smarter, and sustainable communities in the West of Melbourne and beyond, and connecting deeply with industry and the community, enhancing the quality of teaching and learning.

Throughout our one hundred year history, we have proudly focused on creating education and training opportunities for students in the West of Melbourne and beyond. We aim to be a great university in the 21st century. We will provide exceptional value to our students, guiding them to succeed through personalized, flexible, and industry-relevant learning opportunities.

The applied and translational research by our staff and their students and our graduates as employees and citizens will enhance social and economic outcomes in our heartland. Healthier, smarter, and more sustainable communities will result. It is almost impossible in the 21st century to be a successful participant in the global knowledge economy or society without tertiary education. A marvelous university in the 21st century needs to provide students with an offer that emphasizes and values diversity and inclusivity. Victoria University is your university of opportunity and success.

This is an exciting and challenging time for VU. We have an excellent opportunity to develop a dynamic university model relevant to the needs and aspirations of contemporary learners and the community of the 21st century. Victoria University acknowledges and respects the Elders, families, and forebears of the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri of the Kulin, who are the traditional owners of University land.
