Students offered places at Victoria University for 2020

Victoria University is excited to welcome so many new students for 2020 ahead of the summer break.

Vice Chancellor Peter Dawkins said this is the first time Year 12 students have received offers via VTAC in December, with further offers to be made in January.

“Waiting to find out whether you’ve got a first-round offer can make for an anxious holiday period for Year 12 students wanting to attend university, so for many receiving this news today will be a welcome relief,” Professor Dawkins said.

“We know those receiving offers from us today can also look forward to an easier transition to university life as a result of our extensive and exciting transformation journey over the past two years.

“The introduction of the Block Model in 2018 allows our students to complete one unit at a time before moving to the next, instead of juggling multiple units simultaneously, enabling them a better chance of succeeding.

“Since its introduction in 2018, the VU Block Model has seen our first years’ pass rate increase to over 80 per cent and over 40 per cent of students received distinctions and high distinctions, without a change to the assessment given.”

The early offer program VU Guaranteed also attracted 1600 applications for VET and Higher Education courses.
