To apply for a course through VTAC, you’ll need to first create a VTAC account.
It's best to use your personal email when creating your VTAC account. By the time VTAC makes offers you may no longer have access to your secondary school email address.
You can then log into your VTAC account and add courses to your preference list. Choose the courses you are most interested in studying, rather than preferencing courses based on what you think you may be offered.
Carefully check all selection criteria for courses you preference, as some may have additional entry requirements.
You may also wish to consider selecting courses that may provide you with a pathway to your preferred course. Find out more about pathways into VU courses.
Check the VTAC important dates and fees page for the most up to date information about application costs and closing dates.
Detailed information about applying through VTAC is available on the VTAC website.
