What ATAR do I need?

While we do consider your ATAR for some courses, your ATAR is not considered for the majority of courses in our admissions process.

To find out the admission criteria for the course you're interested, check the individual course page.

Transfer credit from previous study

You may be able to gain ‘credit’ for previous study (or work and life experience), which reduces the number of units you may have to complete in your chosen course at VU. This is also called ‘advanced standing.’

If you’re applying directly to VU, you can apply for credit as part of your course application. You will be prompted during the admissions process to submit the required documentation.

You can also apply for credit after receiving your course offer.
