Bachelor of Human Nutrition

Victoria University (VU)

The Bachelor of Human Nutrition commences with a broad discipline base in nutrition, food and related sciences. This underpins second year subjects that major in Human Nutrition and Food Science. In final year students acquire further specialist knowledge and skills in Human Nutrition, and have the option of studying a major in Food Science or Food Service, or a minor in Biomedical Nutrition, Public Health Nutrition or Analytical Chemistry. This allows students to broaden and enrich their learning and diversify employment opportunities enabling graduates to successfully compete in professional settings within the community nutrition, food service and food science areas, and the public health sector and/or pursue post-graduate study.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
