What is VTAC?

The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is the central office that administers the application and offer process for places in tertiary courses at university, TAFE and independent tertiary colleges in Victoria. In August, year 12 students can start to apply for courses through VTAC until the closing date on 29th September. Students can select up to 8 preferences in their VTAC course application.

VTAC is not a selection authority, does not determine the selection criteria used by institutions and does not decide who will receive an offer. All decisions about which applicants are offered a place are made by the course selection authorities at institutions.

After the Course selection officers at each institution have made their decisions, VTAC sends out offers to successful applicants on the institutions’ behalf.

VTAC also:

  • administers the application process for the Special Entry Access Scheme and scholarships;
  • calculates and issues the ATAR rank;
  • co-ordinates sittings for special admissions tests;
  • provides telephone and online information and enquiry services for applicants;
  • publishes a range of guides to tertiary study;
  • conducts information sessions for secondary school students and their parents, careers teachers and adults returning to study.

Alyssa’s Story – Book Club

Book Club has given me a great chance to express my thoughts and opinions of the books I read. It has given me a great opportunity to read more, learn about new books and provided me with a wider range of books to read. In Book Club we go on excursions, such as going to the city to meet authors, which also gives us a chance to buy new books. A current event in Book Club is the ‘Reader’s Cup’ which is where we compete against other teams at a quiz night, answering questions about certain books we have read. Then we present our findings of the books in any creative way we like. An upcoming event will be a visit to the cinemas to watch a film related to a book the majority of us have read. This club has really helped me with my reading and choices of books to read. I am having a great time in Book Club and enjoy attending our weekly meetings.
