Advice and tips to prepare your child for tertiary education.
Applying to RMIT
There are two main ways of applying to study at RMIT, via the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) or directly to RMIT.
Apply through VTAC
VTAC is responsible for processing applications for Victorian tertiary institutions, for degrees, selected certificate and diploma courses.
Your child will have the opportunity to add up to twelve different courses to their preference list. Courses can be added, removed or re-ordered via their VTAC user account until the application closing date.
VTAC course codes
All courses that take applications through VTAC have a unique VTAC course code. Some courses have more than one.
When your child applies for courses, these ten-digit codes tell VTAC which course, which campus and which type of course fees they are applying for.

Apply direct to RMIT
While the majority of secondary school students will apply through VTAC. Selected courses are only available for application direct to RMIT, these include selected certificate, diploma and degree courses and applications made at mid year.
Find out about course fees and options for payment including Commonwealth loans, HECS-Help and VET-Help.
RMIT’s equity access schemes can support your child to access and succeed in education through equity access schemes including SEAS and SNAP.
