Computers & IT reprogrammed at VU

Study an IT/digital media course at VU – the first Australian university to use a 'block' model of learning, where you study one unit at a time rather than juggling several at once, making your transition to university easier.

We are also one of only six universities in Australia offering both TAFE and university courses, meaning you can choose the level of study that best suits you.
