Victoria University

History

Today's Victoria University is a direct descendant of Footscray Technical School (the School), which first opened its doors to students in February 1916. It was intended by local businesses and community to offer students an education that would fit them for a role in the skilled workforce and raise students out of the ranks of unskilled labourers. 

Education

At Victoria University we are taking the national agenda for STEM education forwards, by working to provide students and teachers with:

  • mathematical and statistical understanding and skills that are necessary for STEM
  • qualified teachers of STEM subjects at all levels, especially primary and early years
  • alignment with industry needs, including understanding new job opportunities in data management
  • entrepreneurs who can translate scientific knowledge into businesses that create future jobs in the globally changing economy.

Research

Within innovation and research VU has:

  • developed new mathematics teacher learning in schools and the STEM agenda
  • the Early Learning STEM Australia project cataloguing STEM Apps on iPads for very young children (Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Government of Australia, Canberra) (contact Professor Nicola Yelland).

Career

  • VU Employ is here to provide you with advice and support along every step of your career journey – from crafting your resume for casual employment to exploring your graduate career options.
  • VU has a range of career support services, resources and employability programs.
  • If you’re a current student or recent VU graduate, we're here to make sure you have the skills, experience, confidence and knowledge needed to be job and career ready.
