Applicants must submit at least one preference and pay the fee to activate the VTAC process. Students can choose up to 8 preferences; however, they do not have to use all 8 in the application. Students should always list their preferences in the order of what they most want to study and where they most want attend (Open days – VTAC); include only courses they would consider accepting.
It is important that the preference list has pathway plans and includes a course considered a ‘sure thing’.
When students are reviewing their preferences, it is vital that they read the essential requirements and admission criteria for selection. Some courses require students to submit additional information early. The closing dates for some courses requiring additional information is as early as September! Essential requirements and admission criteria are listed in the course search details. VTAC: Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre
