When you study a postgraduate course at VU, you complete each unit (subject) across a certain number of weeks. This learning period is called a ‘block', and the course structure is known as the VU Block Model.
With its small, collaborative classes, VU’s Block Model for postgraduate courses allows for deep, focused learning: one or two subjects at a time. While studying, you'll also build industry connections to graduate with established professional networks.
PhD courses and Masters by research are not taught in block mode.
For undergraduate study, including all undergraduate certificates, diplomas and degrees taught at our Melbourne and Sydney campuses, please see VU Block Model.
