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.

VU has received the following rankings:

- ranked in the world’s top 2% (Times Higher Education – THE – World University Rankings 2016/2017/2018)

- ranked 56 in the world’s top universities aged under 50 (THE Young University Rankings 2017).  

As one of 39 public universities in Australia, graduates can be assured their qualification from VU is being awarded from a university operating in a world-class education system.

Being a dual-sector university means that our students can easily pathway from vocational education to higher education - such as from a certificate or diploma course through to an undergraduate degree or even a postgraduate qualification by coursework or research.

Entry requirements

Victoria University (VU) can offer you a place as an international student in a course if you meet the minimum Academic requirements for entry into our courses, according to the qualifications in your country. If you've completed a qualification where English was the primary language of instruction, you may be eligible for an exemption. Check the English language requirements. In some cases, there may be additional or supplementary entry requirements.

Scholarship & funding

Victoria University (VU) is proud to support around 400 international scholarship recipients and sponsored students. We host students from a range of externally-funded and university-funded scholarships schemes to support students.

Our courses for international students include TAFE through to undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and higher degrees by research. A scholarship provides financial assistance during your study.

Some scholarships provide a stipend that covers tuition fees and living allowances, while others provide only partial funding. If you already hold a scholarship, or if you are sponsored, remember to note it when you submit your international online application.

All scholarship applicants must meet VU's for academic entry requirements, in addition to any eligibility requirements for their scholarship.
