The Early Entry Offer Program (EEOP) is an alternative entry program for current year 12 students. You can receive a guaranteed place at Victoria University by fulfilling one of these categories:

  • leadership

  • educational disadvantage

  • eligible school in the west.

The EEOP is about recognising you as an individual, not as a number.

This program replaces the Portfolio Partnership Program (PPP).

Year 12 students can receive a guaranteed place at VU through our Early Entry Offer Program.

EEOP application categories

You can apply for an early entry offer if you meet the criteria for one of the below categories.

  1. Leadership
    You can demonstrate formal or informal leadership through your actions. You will need to be endorsed as someone who has proven your ability to:
    1. apply yourself and build on your strengths
    2. nurture or lead others
    3. have made an ethical or social impact at school or in the broader community.
  2. Educational disadvantage
    You have not been able to reach your academic potential at school due to external factors in your life for which you have no control. You will need to be able to demonstrate you have had an educational disadvantage.
  3. Eligible school in the west
    You are studying VCE at an eligible secondary school in the west of Melbourne. Schools that are part of our VU community are in Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Hume, Maribyrnong, Melton, Moonee Valley and Wyndham.

Eligibility for early entry offers

All VU courses offered through VTAC are part of the EEOP.

To be eligible for admission for an early entry offer, you must:

Rules & guidelines

You must apply for the Early Entry Offer Program by 13 October 2017. EEOP nominations after this date will not be considered.

Apply for an early entry offer

Applications are now closed for the Early Entry Offer Program in 2018.

After applying

Once you have submitted an application for the EEOP, wait for us to get in touch with you.

We will aim to contact you the week before your VCE exams start.

Results below the minimum ATAR

For courses that require a minimum ATAR, you may still be considered for the course if you don’t meet the minimum. This will depend on whether you have applied for and qualify under other VU special admission programs.
