Year 12 VTAC Applications

Year 12 families are reminded that the timely VTAC applications closing date for Year 12 students is the 30 September at 5pm and this includes paying the fee of $39.00. SEAS and VCTAC Scholarship applications including the submission of all supporting documents closes on 11 October at 5pm, however, VTAC staff will verify any uploaded documents as “approved” or “rejected” in advance of the SEAS closing date if they are submitted by the 30 September. After this date, documents cannot be resubmitted if, for example, they are illegible.

Year 12 Students Intending to Apply Overseas

It is imperative that students make an appointment urgently if they are intending to apply overseas and have not had a discussion with a Careers staff member as a ‘buzzword’ must be given to UCAS applicants (applying to study in the United Kingdom) and transcripts prepared in the Careers Office. I would anticipate that students have planned their personal statements and had a discussion with staff who will be writing references for them.

Scholarship Resource

The school has access to a scholarship resource that provides an overview of scholarships other than via VTAC. The document can be found at
