Victoria University (VU) also has a campus in Sydney.

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 2018, 2019 and 2020)
  • Ranked 45 in the world’s top universities aged under 50 (THE Young University Rankings 2019)
  • Ranked number one in Australia for Employability (2020 QILT Employer Satisfaction Survey).  

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.

The VU Values are that we are always:

  • Welcoming
  • Ethical
  • Shaping the future
  • Together

They form the acronym ‘WEST’. So, we are ‘always west’ and this is symbolic of place. The west of Melbourne is the heart of VU – the centre from which we serve communities across Australia and overseas.

While we have always taken a values-based approach to our work at VU, our new values are an opportunity to express and further articulate our moral purpose more distinctly.


Our values are a living set of actions that underpin our moral purpose, this is The VU Way, which is to transform the lives and communities we serve.


At Victoria University Sydney campus you can study Diploma, Bachelor and Postgraduate courses in Accounting, Information Systems and Enterprise Resource Planning Systems.
