What is VU's First Year Model?
Why is VU's First Year Model better for me?
You'll have a greater chance of success
More students are passing their first year than ever before. Our first-year pass rates increased to 90% in 2018.
You'll feel less stressed
You only have to focus on one subject at a time. At other universities, you will complete multiple units at once.
Your transition to uni will be easier
You'll complete 1 subject every 4 weeks (including exams), building confidence and momentum in your studies from day one.
You'll feel supported
Learn in smaller classes and have more one-on-one time with your teachers.
Check out this video to hear from our students about how VU's First Year Model is working for them.
Get started by finding your course or speaking to one of our course advisors
In 2018, we designed a new way of learning to make your transition into university easier and give you the skills to succeed when you enter the workforce.
Rather than dealing with the stress of studying 4 units at once like you would at any other University, the First Year Model lets you focus on studying one unit at a time, completing a unit every 4 weeks.
What our students are saying about their first year at VU
Our students are loving the First Year Model and it's proven effective with our 2018 first-year pass rate increasing to 90% since introducing the First Year Model.
