What is VTAC?
The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is the main body for applying to tertiary institutions in Victoria. Most Year 12 students apply for university via a VTAC application, though some non-Year 12 applications use VTAC as well.
The VTAC website should have answers to most questions about courses, but here are some important things you need to know:
- VTAC course codes. These are 10-digit codes that are used in your VTAC application. The easiest way to find your VTAC course code is to search for your course. The VTAC course code can be found next to other key information such as course dates and duration.
- The Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS). This scheme is available to students who experience educational disadvantages. Swinburne participates in all four SEAS categories — learn more about SEAS.
- Location adjustments. We offer automatic adjustments to your application if you live in outer regions or remote communities.
This applies if you are currently studying Year 12 (or Year 12 is your highest level of study), and you submit a VTAC course application where assessment is based on ATAR.
