2017 VU Career Practitioners' Forum highlights

Attendees at the 2017 Career Practitioners' Forum heard professional and academic staff speak about the new education experience Victoria University will offer students in 2018.

The forum opened with details about the First Year Model – an innovative approach to learning and teaching based on a block mode of study. We shared information about flexible timetables, the advantages of smaller class sizes and creating lasting peer connections.

Other sessions included:

  • the importance of student participation and welfare
  • an admissions overview
