Victoria University Melbourne
300 Flinders Street, Melbourne Australia
Victoria University (VU) was founded in 1916 as Footscray Technical School. After successive mergers with TAFE colleges across Melbourne's western suburbs, Victoria University of Technology was established in 1990, and renamed Victoria University in 2005. Today, VU is one of the largest and most culturally diverse education institutions in Australia, and one of only five multi-sector universities offering vocational education (TAFE) and higher education courses.
VU now has more than 48,000 enrolled students, which includes more than 13,400 international students studying our courses onshore or with our partner institutions offshore. More than 2700 academics, teaching and general staff join with the University's students to make VU a university that is excellent, engaged and accessible.
VU maintains strong links with local communities, government and industry, and is distinctive because of its transformational role in improving the lives of people and communities, especially in the western metropolitan region of Melbourne.
Victoria University is made up of seven colleges which offer diplomas, undergraduate degrees as well as postgraduate and research higher degrees. Previously known as faculties, each of the seven colleges focus on a specific broad discipline area – arts, business, education, engineering, health, law or sport science.
In addition to the seven colleges, the Trades College focuses on vocational training, commonly referred to by the term TAFE. Pathways, and language and learning development for students across the University continue to be supported by the VU College
