News from Victoria University
Usually students’ study eight units a year, four each semester. Traditionally, the timetable is structured so a student has a mix of all four units each week.
VU is the first university in Australia offering the Victoria University - Block Model. Each block focuses on one unit (subject) and is only four weeks long, with up to four days between blocks to relax and prepare for the next. In other words, with the Block Model, students get to study one subject every four weeks, with a few days in-between each block. So, students’ study and complete a unit at a time. By immersing oneself in one unit before moving on to the next is regarded as a more focused approach to learning and assessment, particularly for first-year university student.
