PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Victoria University is one of Australia’s largest universities enrolling over 50,000 students, including more than 5,000 international students. VU has 14 campuses in Melbourne, and CSU IP students take courses on the Footscray Park campus. CSU IP students enroll directly in Victoria University, studying alongside Australian students and gaining the experience of being fully integrated into life at VU and in Australia.
Angelica RoblesStudents are required to have a major (or a closely related major) in one of the approved areas of study listed above. Students will need to complete specific major or related courses in order to be prepared for the coursework at VU. Students should consult the VU website for specific courses and keep in mind that not all coursework is available to visiting students and that prerequisites may apply. For more information about the academic programs at VU, students may refer to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin for the previous year. Note that course offerings are subject to change and may not be offered during the year of intended study.
 
Please note that the Australia: Victoria University is based on reciprocal exchange; the number of CSU IP participants accepted into the program is dependent on the ability of Victoria University to send students to study in the U.S. Students applying to this program should select a second choice program in Australia (or elsewhere) that also offers their area of study, in the event that they are not selected for participation in their first choice. The alternate program(s) should be noted on the “Second Choice Questionnaire,” which can be found in the CSU IP application.  
 

LOCATION

Victoria University is in Melbourne, the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Victoria. Melbourne rates highly in education, entertainment, research and development, tourism and sport, making it the world’s most livable city, for the fifth year in a row in 2015. Victoria University has 14 campuses in Melbourne, with CSU IP students taking courses on the largest campus, Footscray Park. The campus is within walking distance to the Footscray train station and is a 10 minute train ride to the Melbourne city center. More information on the Footscray Park campus can be found here.  
 

HOUSING

Students arrange their own housing using information provided Victoria University. Some students secure housing before departure, choosing to live in on-campus residence halls, while others prefer to live off-campus in shared apartments or home stays.  More information about on-campus and off-campus accommodations at VU can be found here.
