There are 5 vowels and 3 consonants. 2 groups formed, one with vowels and other with consonants. 

So those 2 groups can be arranged in 2! ways. 

Now vowels in themselves can be arranged in 5! ways and consonants in themselves can be arranged in 3! ways. 

So totally we have 2! * 5! * 3! ways i.e., 2*1*5*4*3*2*1*3*2*1 = 1440 ways
