Eligibility & admissions
Find out if you're eligible for the program, discover the admissions requirements for course applications, and learn what happens if you don't meet entry requirements.
To apply for VU Guaranteed and be guaranteed a place at VU you need to:
- be a current Year 11 or 12 student at school in Victoria
- go on to complete Year 12 (note: if you are completing VCAL or an unscored VCE, you are still eligible to apply)
- add a VU course to your VTAC preference list or apply direct to our TAFE courses, where VTAC isn't listed on the course page.
Remember, a VU Guaranteed application is not a course application. You will need to include your desired course as your highest eligible preference on your VTAC preference list (if it is a VTAC-listed course), or apply to us for apply-direct TAFE courses.
You'll still need to satisfy the admission requirements for the courses you preference in VTAC or apply for directly. If you do not meet the admission requirements, we will provide you with an alternative course recommendation designed to help you achieve your goals.
As a VU Guaranteed applicant, you will be guaranteed a place in at Victoria University (either TAFE or university), but not for a particular course.
Your VU Guaranteed application is not a course application. You will need to include your desired course as your highest eligible preference on your VTAC preference list (if it is a VTAC-listed course), or apply directly to for our apply-direct TAFE courses.
If you do not meet the admission requirements, we provide you with an alternative course recommendation designed to help you achieve your goals.
The answers that you supply in your VU Guaranteed application will also be used to assess your scholarship or grant application if you attend a VU Guaranteed partner school at the time the scholarships and grants are awarded.
(This is additional to the standard VU Guaranteed program; you don't need to attend a partner school to apply to for VU Guaranteed.)
