VU block model
Victoria University has won many awards for her VU Block model. Unlike the standard university model where students you juggle multiple subjects at once in a semester, at VU, you get to concentrate on one unit (subject) at a time. You complete each unit over a four-week ‘block’. As you finish your block on Friday, you have your results the following Monday. You don’t have to wait till forever to receive your results.
VU is the first university in Australia to introduce the Block Model, building on the proven successes of block programs at universities in Sweden, Canada and the US.
Since the inception of this learning model in 2018, our students are performing better than ever before. In 2019, first-year pass rates were at 87% (up 13% on standard model) while for second year students, pass rates were at 90%. Beyond academic results, the immersive Block class environment develops your confidence and independence as a learner and problem-solver, preparing you for success in your future career.
The VU Block Model is offered to students in all years of our undergraduate higher education degrees and for post graduate courses following its success with undergraduate students.
