The Smarter Way to Study
Experience a smarter, more engaging way to study with the VU Block Model, where students are encouraged to focus on one subject at a time. This method of approach embraces a new way of learning to make the transition to university easier and prepare students to enter the workforce with confidence. Inspired by similar models across North America and Europe - the award-winning VU Block Model is a proven success with students, educators and employers.
Why It’s Smarter
Interactive, Connected and Collaborative
At VU, students are introduced to the most sought-after learning engagement - Interactive, Connected and Collaboration Block Class. Students are assigned to a small size of block class and lectures are conducted in an interactive, workshop-style class - where teachers know you and you know your classmates. Each student is given the opportunity to collaborate, and put theory into practice with real-world scenarios in every class.
Develop Critical Problem-Solving Skills
The VU Block Model focuses on developing problem-solving skills in real-world applications, and the ability to work collaboratively in teams, better-preparing students for the workplace. Australian employers agree - ranking VU graduates number 1 in Australia for employability skills for a second year.
Feedback Rich And Build Confidence
As well as being able to clarify concepts and questions in class, the Block Model also provides students with timely feedback and results. Block classes typically finish on a Friday and students are able to receive results on the following Monday. This takes away uncertainty and a long wait for results and means that you can begin the next Block with confidence.
Selected from the capstone unit of Applied Business Challenge, students are given the opportunity from conceptualisation to final pitching in front of a panel of industry and academic experts.
The focused timetabling of the VU Block Model means you have more time for work, social life, sport, caring responsibilities, and everything else that’s important to you.
