Study at VU and your future is guaranteed

Victoria University’s VU Guaranteed program is Australia’s most innovative admissions scheme. From now until 30 September 2018, Year 12 students from Victoria University partnership schools have the opportunity to apply for VU Guaranteed —an exciting new early entry program.

Unlike other university offer programs, which are limited in scope, VU Guaranteed ensures students will have a place at Victoria University within one week of applying, along with access to course mapping to help them achieve their post-secondary school ambitions.

VU Guaranteed is about providing crucial educational opportunities that will have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of future students. VU Guaranteed is designed for students who want certainty in an uncertain world.” Ms Alex Sims, Director Future Students, Marketing and Communications.

This new initiative is made possible by Victoria University’s unique dual sector offering, which presents a large range of course options, from certificates to degrees. No matter which course a student wants to study, Victoria University has a place for everyone in a TAFE or undergraduate (degree) program. VU Guaranteed supports the university’s long-standing commitment to ensure educational opportunities are made available to willing and motivated students.

“This is a fantastic and unique opportunity to encourage young people in the west to achieve their tertiary aspirations. VU Guaranteed puts one of life’s most valuable assets within everyone’s reach — an outstanding tertiary education.” Professor Peter Dawkins Vice-Chancellor and President.

Like the students we hope to attract, Victoria University embraces innovation and recognises that students are more than just their ATAR. The First Year Model, and VU Polytechnic’s multi-award winning Blending Learning approach, are just two examples of how VU continues to successfully transform the tertiary landscape.

Why VU Guaranteed stands out:

Students who do not meet entrance requirements will be mapped into an alternative course to ensure they are still guaranteed a place at Victoria University during the change of preference period in December

VU automatically includes applicants from schools in the west into the VU Achievement Scholarship scheme

Students can trust that their tertiary place is secure
