Information about undergraduate study

A message from the Associate Dean 

Welcome to Victoria Business School. Degree regulations and course procedures can seem complex at first, but it is important that you take responsibility for your own programme of study.

Start by familiarising yourself with the information that we have made available. This material contains links to general information about the BCom and BTM degrees as well as the Graduate Certificate and Diploma in Commerce and the Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting. Links to degree audit checklists are also included to allow you to see whether your proposed programme meets the requirements; other checklists will be made available at our Student Counters.

If there is something that you are not sure about, make an appointment with your Student Adviser. I hope that you enjoy your time as a commerce student at the Victoria Business School.

- Dr John Randal
